Hi, wonder if there is a tweak reg. file or script that can totally remove automatic updates (not disable thru control panel or gpedit.msc)?

Hi MaMister.

Could you tell us why you want to do this. Are you having a problem?

Please download this from Microsoft and run it on your computer
Filename = WGADiag2.exe
Press "Copy to clipboard" and post the results here

Just disable automatic updates.

Thor why are you requesting information from the MGA Diagnostic tool? Not sure how that is relevant?

Posted results from Windows Genuine Advantage [WGADiag2.exe] could contain sensitive system information.
I do not believe that is in MaMister's best interest to request such.

And as Grinler has asked above, I'd also would like to know why you have requested it.
