    • I had a problem that pages of help.chm file were empty. I point out that in this case it is needed to view the file properties and unblock it.
    • Hi Petr,
      This issue is presented with all files downloaded from the internet. The SmartScreen Filter is in charge of blocking them to protect your PC.
      I will include this information in the next update.
  • It works!

    • The zip file that is downloaded is empty.  The spanish version seems to work.  Anybody else see the problem?
    • Hi, KohaiUT! For me, the download is working fine. Just a guess: maybe your antivirus program is detecting it as some kind of malware and deleting the script files from within the zip file.
    • Hi,
      Please try download in
  • Tool not working

    • The zip file is only 626KB and the help file instructions  is 615 KB and the cmd file is only 5 Kb. when it prompts you to enter any key to run as administrator, the screen blanks out when you press a key. Is this a complete file ? 
    • Hi Fred,
      This tool is a command-line script, read the help.chm for the use.
  • Trojan in the launcher?

      I can't use this tool because the launcher exe is removed. It was said:The file was marked as a Trojan by several antivirus. Below is a detailed review by the page.
      What can I do?

  • Cannot Access Windows Services
    6 Posts | Last post June 05, 2017
    • First, thank you for posting this tool!  I ran it because I cannot get Microsoft's latest Cumulative Update (KB4013429) to install. recommended running your tool.  Good or bad after running your script I still cannot install KB4013429.  But worse I have lost all access to Windows Services.  I get the message, "An Administrator has blocked you from running this app.  For more information  contact the administrator.  mmc.exe"  Can you help me get it turned back on?  (As an FYI, restarting did nothing.  Also I cannot run Windows Services as an Administrator either. :) )
    • I had to go into my registry wcnsvc and re-enable my user permissions to "Full Control".  Apparently a part of your script is that you changed this from "Full Control" to "Read Only".
    • Hi William,
      This tool removes some Firewall settings, DNS settings and more.
      However, it is not designed to add restrictions to system control.
      I will be attentive for another similar situation.
    • I have the exact same issue
    • William, can you tell me where in the registry do you reset permissions to full please.  Thank you. 
    • Hi Chrismo16 and SKB10,
      The key Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate contains the information regarding the policies of Windows Update.

  • Download was interrupted
    4 Posts | Last post June 05, 2017
    • Running Windows 7 Home 64 bit + 32 bit with IE 11 and WebRoot SecureAnywhere. Unable to complete download of even after disabling Webroot.  Message appears at apx 1 minute shy of completion that "Download was interrupted".  Could you suggest what might cause the interruption and how to fix?  
      As to Windows Update, have been able to install a few files but many fail.
      Thanks, Manuel.
    • Hi Cyber,
      Try download this in
    • So we use this on Power Shell, right?
    • Hi Nguyen,
      This tool is the command-line script. You have run as administrator.
