Windows 7: ask me first if I want to download updates

ask me first if I want to download updates

do you have a .reg file for the "ask me first if I want to download updates" setting?


I presume it wouldn't duplicate any registry entries if run at every startup...?

Hello n13l5,

The REG files below will set this group policy setting for you for all users. I included an undo option.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
