Windows Update MiniTool — Install or remove Windows Updates by using this straightforward application that also lets you hide some of the available updates
Windows Updates are Microsoft’s way to ensure that everybody receives all available bug fixes, patches or enhancements on time. While it is undoubtedly useful to install them, sometimes these updates might come in a bad moment, e.g. when you are in a hurry or are busy working, so you simply postpone them. If you want to make sure that you do not forget about the postponed updates, you can use Windows Update MiniTool, as it allows you to download and install them when you choose. This application features a straightforward layout that makes it as intuitively as possible for all users to enjoy its feature-set. Since it is portable, it does not require any installation on the host PC. It is an alternative to the standard Windows Update.

How it works
This script auto-elevates, uninstalls and removes the Windows 10 Update Assistant, renames the %programfiles%\rempl folder disabling remsh.exe, resets and removes permissions from and disables UsoClient.exe, WaaSMedic.exe, WaasMedicSvc.dll, WaaSMedicPS.dll, WaaSAssessment.dll, and SIHClient.exe, makes sure the task «wub_task» is installed that runs wub at boot (to stop updates from turning updates back on), *runs wub and enables and starts the windows update service (wuauserv) if disabled (*wub can be disabled using the included Configurator.cmd script, leaving Windows Updates always running so you can use Store and Defender at any time), then runs the correct version of the Windows Update MiniTool in «auto search for updates» mode for your OS version's architecture (x86 or x64), then disables and stops wuauserv giving you full control. No more forced automatic updates or surprise reboots. This was written for Windows 10 Pro and Home, but works with all versions of Windows 10.
* Don't change any settings in WUMT while running the script.
** If you need to install .Net 3.5 or use the Windows 10 Store or something that needs wuauserv running, run the script and after it enables wuauserv and starts WUMT, install what you need after WUMT checks for updates but BEFORE closing WUMT (unless you ran the Configurator to leave Windows Updates (wuauserv) on and running, then you can do those things at any time.)
Script now uses PowerRun v1.3 to lock update hijacker files.
Removed yellow highlighting from script screens for support of Windows 10 TH1 10240.
Language components Installer tasks disabled (you can reenable them manually if needed). If this causes any problems please report it.
Removed accidental unicode in _readme.txt which caused strange characters to display in Oriental languages.
Windows Update service is now forced to stay running as long as WUMT is running.
