    That's because WUMT takes care of update checks and the Windows Update message relates to the last time an actual check was made by "Windows Updates" which I think you have disabled by running WUMT.
    I have never used WUMTWrapperScriptConfigurator. My WUMT does not check for updates automatically, but my VBScript does. I have disabled "Windows Updates" by running the commands in post #473 .

    Reason: When you close WUMT window it automatically disables update service but if installing updates it's required to be left running.
    Yesterday I successfully installed "2018-03 Cumulative Update" when WUMT was not running.

    That's because you didn't leave WU service running when installing an update that requires a reboot.
    Windows Update said "We couldn't install some updates because the PC was turned off" when I was NOT installing any updates.
    The screenshot in post #546 was taken BEFORE I installed the updates.
    The time shown in post #546 is "3 Days Ago" , and I installed the updates yesterday as shown below:

    Look when you launch WUMT even if you never launched WUMT Configurator it will change WU settings.

    Open Windows Update MiniTool.cmd with your text editor and read the contents. There is absolutely no point in manually running the commands in Post 473. You will also notice that the script is designed to use Windows Update MiniTool in "auto search for updates" mode in the GUI.

    From the script contents:

    If you need to install .Net 3.5 or use the Windows 10 Store or something that needs wuauservrunning, run the script and after it enables wuauserv and starts WUMT, install what you needafter WUMT checks for updates, before closing WUMT
    This means that if you need to install an update that requires a reboot to complete then you need to use configurator. It's your choice on whether you leave WU service running or not. Personally I do not leave it running except when installing updates.

    Where is "Windows Update MiniTool.cmd"? I cannot find it.

    I cannot find "configurator" either. Where is it?

    The point is that UsoClient.exe cannot check for updates. In the screenshot below, the error code "0x80070005" means "Access is denied".

    In WUMT, "Windows Update" had been set to "Automatically", but "Windows Update" still failed to download updates, as shown in the screenshot in post #549.

    I see yet another way to block WU, through the firewall (happens to be from the WUMT English forum discussion thread). I haven't tried it:
    --- Block Windows Update --
    Code:
    netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Block Windows Update" dir=Out action=Block program="C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe" service=wuauserv protocol=TCP remoteport=80,443
    --- Permit/UnBlock Windows Update ---
    Code:
    netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name="Block Windows Update"

    Delete these registry subkeys (if they exist) and reboot.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
    additionally on a 64bit machine delete:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
    Only delete the AU subkeys.
    Thanks, I will try that. I also noticed that that message "Some settings are managed by your organization" doesn't show up on Windows 10 Home following WUMT config. We'll just have to see if the behavior differs.

    Hello coukou, :)

    Usually, you would see a normal notification above the notification area on the taskbar.

    Normally yes
    Yesterday, having no updates notification in the taskbar, I opened the Windows Update panel and there it offered an update (unfortunately, in opposite of win7, win 10 does not propose a list of updates that we enable or not). I launched the update v17134.

    Today I have no notification in the taskbar, on the Windows Update panel neither, I am up-to-date with the latest version 17134.
    I still checked the registry, it was different from your here above Notify_before_Downloading_and_Installing_Updates (it is due to the v17134 update? can't confirm). I have reintegrated yours.

    From the new update, I'll let you know if I have a notification or not.
