Seriously. I got so sick of Windows updates. Turned them off years ago and oddly enough, haven't had a problem since.

I'm probably vulnerable or some shit but I'm betting any bug I may encounter because of it will only be half as annoying as the updates.

Auto-updates are not some sort of cure-all, even though a lot of security folks seem to think they are. They're a back door for Microsoft, and considering the spyware they crammed into Windows 10, you can't really trust them to be the "good guys." You never could, but this underscores their attitude towards their customers. Plus, I've had far more harm done by updates than I ever have from malware.
