  1. Windows Update MiniTool


    I just tried this and it found several drivers that needed updates. As I precaution I manually checked a couple of devices in Device Manager, and sure enough they updated.

    This tool is either awesome, or is going to cause problems: do others use it?

    :)

    I have tried everything and cannot stop Windows 10 from auto updating my Intel Graphics Driver...

    Hi! Someone else in the thread suggested a 3rd party program called Windows Update MiniTool. It's basically like Wushowhide but not an official Microsoft program.

    I spotted that the other day but decided to put my sensible head on and didn't download it.

    Personally I can do without 3rd party software that decides to download Windows updates. Could be downloading all sorts of crap.

  6. I agree that caution is needed, but you can tell it to just look without installing, and then choose what you want.

    That tool is a known trouble maker. The so called updates are usually not needed and you end up opening yourself to malware. Only use Windows update to handle the drivers, or check the manufacturer website.

    Drivers should not update, unless there was some change done by the manufacturer. The only tool that is trustworthy is Secunia's PSI (Personal Software Inspector) downloaded from Secunia.com or majorgeeks.com. Free security software - Secunia Personal Software Inspector

    If you are wanting a trustworthy software repository, Majorgeeks.com is the only place to know that you are not getting possible infected software.

    Windows Update MiniTool

    This tool is using the windows update service to find updates, only addition is it gives you control over the update process.
    There is a long thread at MDL re. this

  9. The MDL thread seems mostly about it being a virus (it isn't), but I don't use that site so I can't see all the posts.

    There was some confusion in the beginning when people mixed up the download site (which gave warnings in some AV-progs) with the tool itself. It was all cleared up as you can see if you read the thread to the end.

    My problem with the tool is that, every time I try to install it, I get the Russian version rather than the English version.

    Any suggestions?

    You should download the english version of the wumt_lang.ini file and put it in the same dir as the executable.

    Use (WUMT --- download) link listed on page from above link.

    First you must download the tool (comes in both x86 and x64 versions) then download you preferred language ini file. Place language ini file in same directory as x86 and x64 files.

    This tool can give you complete control of Windows Update. You can first view available updates and then decide which ones you want to install. You can also hide updates you do not want. I have disabled Microsoft's Automatic Windows Update and I use this tool exclusively for all Windows Update in Windows 10, 8.1 and 7.

    Your choice. Make your own folder and call it whatever you like. The executables do not install anything. They are basically portable programs.
