ABC-Update is a freeware that is specifically designed for Windows devices much like the alternative update tool, Driver Booster. It can be said that it gives you more control of exactly when and how Windows updates are distributed on your network to any given number of computers.
ABC-Update is a portable freeware and gives you full control of Microsoft updates and all the operations that go along with such updates. You can, for example, schedule updates for off-peak hours, especially handy for updates that are resource-heavy and time-consuming. Additionally, the program comes with two versions: the GUI and the command-line version.
As mentioned above, ABC-Update is a portable tool with its main function being controlling system updates and related services within Microsoft Windows. ABC-Update has become more popular in recent times due to the fact that Microsoft has made it near impossible to switch off automatic updates which can be annoying, to say the least.
With ABC-Update, not only will you be able to control when and where the updates take place, but you will also be able to control other settings related to Microsoft Updates. If updates take place unexpectedly, you could be subject to the ‘Blue Screen Of Death’.
GUI and Command-line version
