    Windows Update Blocker wub.exe


    I just downloaded this file Wub.zip I scanned the zip file with norton antivirus. I then unzipped it and again scanned the files that were unzipped with norton antivirus. No threats found.
    it supposedly can be check by the hash in some way ? I did have a hard time identifying where to download this.
    File: Wub.exe
    MD5: cbd186aae10955ac7d1aed5d5209cc06
    SHA1: 3480fc28d024564e4093c9fb5358d5280441dcde
    Still trying to grasp this. hash stuff.
    So now I will try to run this file. I have my machine HD cloned to a different bootable HD so I am not super concerned.
    I searched the forum rules
    Any comments on this update blocker. ?
    I am going to give this file a shot and see if I can block updates.

    The hash checks out.

    I think the original topic heading needs a minor edit

    change wab.exe to wub.exe

    I prefer to use PowerRun myself, for disabling Windows updates.....easier than messing with INI files.

    Thankfully We live in a free country. At least most of us do.

    I have never used wub.exe but used PowerRun to set all connections as metered.
