    Tried the russian version, can't wait for english one.
    Great piece of software... Faster than previous version, does not hang on refresh (so far).
    It realy helped me with installing updates to my Fujitsu NH532 laptop.

    This is how "Windows update" should look in Windows 10.
    Maybe Microsoft will learn something... (doubtfully)...

    Thank you for the link!

    This is absolutely the best tool for the job at the moment.
    I hope we can come up with a cooperation with those guys (not just for an english translation, but for exchanging know-how in general.)

    Cheers!

    EN translation in progress

    I'm working with @stupid user in the gui locale. I'm rushing myself to finish this thing in the next few hours.

    Now this is some slick s**t. Does this work independently of the windows update service? I would love nothing more than to murder the s**t out of WU.

    Unfortunately it seems that this tool depends also of the windows update service.

    on my Win7 with WU disable WUMT when searching for patches always returns this error 0x8007042D It seems related with the WU service

    %windir%\softwaredistribution\download

    Because it uses WU, the directory is the same.

    Downloaded this tool some time ago, but for some reson would not work as suggested...
    tried it again tonight and it appeared to be working.. so uninstalled - Kb3074678, kb3074686, kb3081455
    all superseded according to another thread in this forum, ran the tool again... hid these updates, then ran Windows Update and lo and behold ..... none of them showed up

    Don't understand why the tool appears to work only intermittentaly though???? [But Grateful .. and thanked for the post]


    Q: Been following some of your suggestions (regarding telemetry) with some interest, but have noticed you have removed some/all of your links to some pertinent posts recently... any reason?

    ie: Do I now need to disregard those previously posted suggestions, or has a better solution been posted that I have missed... thanks in advance for any input.

    ... running Enterprise LTSB N

    God you are quick.... but in this case this (link mentioned above) is the version I am using (had to check the hash values first though...)

    Also for what it's worth... Following your Office install thread with some interest... but may hang about for the VL release.

    I thank you for your response though.... Cheers

    @Mr.X

    Could you please use other file hosts like Mega without a gazillion adds and no need for disabling my ublock/ghostery?

    Frankly Opera (from 1 to 12.17) was (and still is) the best antivirus for windows.

    Not downloading the malware is better than remove it.

    How do you make it turn the windows update service back off when you're done?
