    I wish to automatically install all critical/security updates, unfortunately
    I do not have the time to manually check all updates and their superceeding
    updates etc, is it possible to have WSUS just remove old updates and install
    the new ones without going in and declining all old ones.

    Hi John,

    We wrote a very basic tool to take care of this. We called it 'wsuster' and
    released it on our brand new website. Download link

    The tool was written in VB.NET and uses the Update Services API described by
    Microsoft. The tool must be run on the WSUS server. Comments can be sent to

  3. WSUS will handle all supercession considerations automatically...

    EXCEPT those affecting Cumulative Updates for IE and OE.

    It is recommended that you mark "Not Approved" or "Declined" for all
    Cumulative Updates prior to the current release.
