Control Over Your Windows Updates With An Update List
The Windows Updates Downloader uses an update list. With the update list you may see which updates are available and isolate the ones you want before you download. The downloader not only allows you to pick which updates you download and install but it also gives you greater control over how they are installed. People who use the WUD program are able to avoid the accidental bugs that Windows update creates such as the time the Windows update made IE unable to view images with active scripting or the time a Windows update disabled Norton Antivirus's active protection.
Control Which Updates You Install
Installing your updates may require a further tool such as nLite which is one of the reasons why Windows Updates Downloader is not a convenience tool it is a tool for people who wish to gain greater control over their computer and how it is updated and changed. The tool is best suited to people who are very confident with their PC/computer and/or people who have IT qualifications.
