Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1

I am tring to use Task Scheduler to download and install windows updates at 2:00 AM every day.
All is well until I come to entering Program/script: and I have no idea what to put in!

Can this be done?
Thanks

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,

There's no need to use Task Scheduler for that. You can set interval and time from Control Panel - Windows Update - Change Settings

Keep it simple

windows update .. I can only set time when it installs not when it downloads. Downloading in bonus time is what i am after.
