Automatic install of EVERY windows updates

    Question

  • Hi everyone,

    Got a client who want to keep every computers up to date automatically.

    I done it by pushing a GPO to search of update every day (22 hour by default sound good) and install the updates à 23:00 every night then restart if necessary (confirmed on every computer).

    But the KB890830 from the 11 october wait for manual install in windows update on every computer since it come up.  I launch the installation manually on a computer for testing if there is no trouble and all go fine.  It pop-up the agreement, accepted, created the restore point and the installation was sucessful witouth having to restart after.

    So why this update doesn't install automatically, is it because of the agreement? Do a WSUS is necessary for skipping this part? The WSUS at this client is down for some reasons and we can't go on every computer everytime to confirm if the update will be install or is waiting.

    Thanks you

  • It should be automatic : 

    The easiest way to download and run the tool is to turn on Automatic Updates. Turning on Automatic Updates guarantees that you receive the tool automatically every month. If you have Automatic Updates turned on, you have already been receiving new versions of this tool monthly. The tool runs in quiet mode unless it finds an infection. If you have not been notified of an infection, no malicious software has been found that needs your attention
