  • I see this command promt window starting up at every logon on all my machines. Same behavior is reported here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_desktop/usoclient-popup/3980390b-32c6-4325-b7ee-033daaf23787?auth=1

    I didn´t find any task scheduler though. All computers are part of domain and using Confmgr for gathering software updates.

    Has anyone solved yet?


    In Task Scheduler: \Microsoft\Windows\UpdateOrchestrator

    Don [doesn't work for MSFT, and they're probably glad about that ;]

  • Hi yannara,

    What is your current situation?

    Have you checked the task shared by Don?

    If any further help needed, please feel free to post back.

    Regards

  • Sorry for this delay, I´ve been busy. This behavior occures on all my domain computers and I would like to disable or hide this via Group Policy Preferences. But here is the problem - if I start to clone this task, in AD GPO I don´t have an option "configure for Windows 10". I only have W2008, W7. Is there a way to import this into AD and disable or hide it?

  • Hi yannara,

    May the ADMX for Windows 10 help here?

    Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 10

  • They are in use already, but I´m using W2012 R2 server for modifying them. Perhaps I should install RSOP on W10 client machine.

  • And here comes the problem;

    In Windows 10 RSOP, I have no option to Configure for Windows 10. I don´t think it will work, if I set it to Windows 7...

  • Hello!

       There is a task in "Task Scheduler->Microsoft->Windows->UpdateOrchestrator->Shedule Scan" which runs usoclient.exe. So I think you should configure that task as you need :) (change Truggers OR disable that task).

    Best regards, Ilyas.

    PS: I hope it helps....

            ... just a good sysadmin ...

    Is this doable in GPMC?

  • usoclient.exe is the replacement for windows update. please, don't say "it's a registry problem" or indicate that it's a potential virus. it's not. it's part of the windows operating system.

    i hate people that think every new file has to be a virus without checking it out correctly.

  • Thank you. Where do we check things like this out? This is the only place I could find to explain the usoclient.exe that was installed on July 16, 2016 and has been causing a pop-up window that goes by too quickly to read -- until today.

  • USOclient.exe searches for updates that are setup without WSUS or going to the internet, in other words a proprietary solution is running the updates.  It runs as a Task from Group Policies.  If you are seeing the pop-up command screen it means the administrator forgot to make the Task not only 'Hidden' but under the command of the SYSTEM.

    Here is a link outside TechNet that explains how to strap the Task configuration so the user does not see the background activity shown to the screen.

    https://www.howtogeek.com/tips/how-to-run-a-scheduled-task-without-a-command-window-appearing/

    And to answer your question...It takes searching, reading, searching, reading and more reading to find good answers with a lot of misguided suggestions along the way, but some good places to start are TechNet, HowtoGeek, and Tomshardware.  Good Luck.

    For what it's worth, here is a link to Windows Update: Control and Isolation
