If the problem is with Windows Update, rather than disabling it, change it to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them".

I am guessing that Windows Update was earlier set to download and update automatically. But, with the setting above, it will check for updates, and then inform you. Then, you can update at your own convenience. That way, you will not be without updates, and it won't interfere with the OS activity too.

This is what I do on my system.

Disabling Windows Update altogether is not the solution. It's good to keep your Windows system patched with the latest updates.
