      One quick question.  Checked out your Block a patch page and found three options.  I usually use WUShowHide.  What are the pros and cons of each of these three options?

      Ok, one more.  In what order do you suggest we use?

      Thank you !!

        WUShowHide allows you to scan for updates and hide them (like you used to be able to do in Win7). Then you use Windows Update to download/install the updates (after the WU cache is cleared so the updates are not in the queue). So the two work together.

        WUMgr is a solution in itself. If you use it, it replaces both wushowhide and WU, because you can do both operations (scan/hide and download/install) from its controls.
