Default Batch files to disable autmatic windows updates

I tired of all of the in house spying of microsoft. so I made a batch file to disable it.

copy and paste this notepad

sc config wuauserv start= disabled
sc config BITS start= demand
sc stop wuauserv
sc stop BITS

save it as disablewindowsupdates.bat

here is a way to enable it when you want to manually update it

sc config wuauserv start= auto
sc config BITS start= auto
sc config ERSvc start= auto
sc start wuauserv
sc start BITS
sc start ERSvc
start %SystemRoot%\system32\wupdmgr.exe

save it as enableupdates.bat

put them in a safe place

Does this achieve something differnt than disabling all windows update features via the local group policy editor? This is cool though I will keep it on my thumb drive for a quick pick me up ;-)

it a quicker method than manually doing it in serveices.msc or gpedit.msc.

I forget to do these things manually from time to time
