Force Windows Update


Recommended Posts

How can I force the Windows Update application to check for updates and download them? I want the little yellow sheild to appear in the system tray and tell me "There are updates that have been downloaded and are ready to install" or whatever it says.

In other words, I want to simulate whatever happens at 3:00 AM every day (well, that's the default time). I'm guessing I need to send the right switch to wuauclt.exe?

Hmm, well, I guess that would be better than nothing. How do I automatically change that setting?

And on the same note, how do I change the behavior of Windows Update? How do I choose "download and prompt me to install" instead of "download and install automatically"?
