OZO’s WU6.bat file for controlling Microsoft Update & BITS

Today i found on DSLReports an interesting article about WU6.bat. Author of the program is OZO, he have made some other free nifty programs too.

What is the purpose of the batch file WU6?

SUMware on DSLR: WU6.bat file allows to connect to Microsoft Update site and to retrieve all necessary updates from there as usual. Additionally, the rest of the time it keeps unnecessary services (“Microsoft Update” – wuauserv and, if required, BITS service) stopped and with startup type set to ‘disabled’, eliminating extra resource usage and stopping unwanted updates that may be pushed on computer via different Automatic Update mechanisms.

WU6.bat will work with Windows XP, and is IMO a useful program to eliminate unnecessary background processes and/or services. At the same time it will stop pushed unwanted Microsoft updates.

Other free OZO programs
