So, is this freeware solution, or paid for ?
If paid for, there is already this:
I've tested it and it works !
I tend to test everything, so keen to test anything new out there that does the same job !
I've passed the link on to some folk I know, see if any of them are interested.
They are always going on about window updates. :-)
@Nanos the video link in the first comment should work; the one in the tag doesn't because it was lowercased :(
And I'm sorry I forgot to mention, but it's free like many of their other small, single purpose applications :)
It's nothing big or fancy, just does as advertised and handles the boring parts so the user doesn't have to keep track of settings, services, and whatnot...
Do we know its free from testing ?
Just I'm always coming across applications that say 'free', then after I've installed them, I find out they are the lite version with limited options and a nag screen, or just a 30 day demo !
I like to be sure about these things. :-)
It's great if it works with other OS's, as I'm always having a hard time telling Vista to stop looking for updates !

@Nanos I haven't seen nag screens, limitations, or trial periods in this or any of their other software except if they explicitly advertise it on the product page.
It's one of many tools in the "Free Software" category (http://novirusthanks.org/download-f...) that states:
"We have developed many free Windows utilities. Download free software for Windows PC, safe and
100% virus-free. Here you can find all our free software, sorted alphabetically." — which actually seems to be true :o
Also, the specs state:
Operating System: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 (32\64-bit)
License Type: Freeware
iamgio40922yI like having Windows updated...
taiBsu992yyeah like people complain about updates all the time but when it comes to functionality or safety they always want everything to be up to date so there's simply no way for some people to make them not hate Windows. I personally like my Windows safe and updated. besides that I never had a situation that would have made me able to even complain about updates as I never recognise them because they run in the background. </rant>
Windows offers to disable updates for 1 month. Then it will check them regardless with IMO is a good thing. You shouldn't use outdated OS and 1 month is long already.
Freeware which has an ability to completely disable updates, along with tons of other privacy tweaks :)
Root558812yDuring the practically forced win10 free upgrades, I killed my Windows update to prevent the "complimentary upgrade" from happening. I've since forgotten how to fix it ☹
Oh well, I'm moving to Debian anyway.
