"For example, the operating system may automatically restore default settings for critical services, adjust feature settings to match your hardware configuration, or make other specific changes required for Windows to operate normally. Critical troubleshooting happens automatically and can’t be turned off."
I'm afraid it isn't yours any-more. They have though kindly added a new feature to show you the critical changes the system makes on your behalf (you can only look though, not undo them).
Joking aside though, you shouldn't be able to defer security updates, the same way as if you want to drive a car on the public highway it has to be safe. If your infected PC goes onto the public net it will try to infect others.
