The question was already asked : What makes you think it's Avast turning on the Windows Updates ???
Please answer that question and give us some information that shows this is Avast related.
I run Windows 10 and updates are turned off and on through the Windows settings. Avast doesn't control Windows Updates.

Thats easy bob the frist thing i did was turn windows update off , the second thing i did was log in and install avast then after every reboot windows updates turned back on just like on the old hard drive untill avast asked me about windows updates and i was able to turn that feature off in avast im just unable to find where it is in avast again ! or untill or if avast asks me about it again,
This is a gaming rig

Again, Avast has nothing to do with windows updates.

untill avast asked me about windows updates
That was very likely a warning about a new Windows update because not many people had downloaded it at that moment.
But as Bob said, avast has nothing to do with Windows enabling/disabling the Windows automatic updates.

Do you have any other security (related) software installed ?
