    Hi!
    I am trying to disable Automatic Updates on Windows 2000 computers/server
    usring .reg file. This is what I have so far:
    I am deleting a key
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "NoAutoUpdate"=-
    Adding a Key.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "NoAutoUpdate"=DWORD:00000001
    Also, it does delete a key but doesn't add it. Also, is this sufficient
    enough?
    Thank you,

  2. Ton,

    Why not just disable automatic updates using the AU applet in the
    Control Panel ?
