AutoPatcher Updated To Support Windows 7

AutopatcherQuite a while ago Microsoft put a lid on third-party Windows update downloader AutoPatcher forcing them to shutdown, but it seems the utility is still available and now have been updated to support Microsoft Windows 7. For starters AutoPatcher let users and system administrators download updates once and apply them to as many computers they like without needing an active internet connection.

AutoPatcher For Windows 7

AutoPatcher works pretty much like WSUS Offline Updater utility but with the added benefit of adding custom modules enabling users to apply registry tweaks and third-party applications complete with official updates in a neat single package.

Autopatcher Gone, Now What ??

Microsoft has forced Autopatcher to close, but here is a little known but handy service "WindizUpdate" which allows you to update windows without visiting the MS site, I am yet to test the service but basically it allows you to update your computer without IE and without transferring any personally identifiable information from your computer, few more advantages of using the service are listed on the WindizUpdate website, in future the service plans to provide driver updates along with windows update.

Thanks To Microsoft - Autopatcher is no more :(

Download Autopatcher XP

Here is what is posted by the Autopatcher Team:

Today we received an e-mail from Microsoft, requesting the immediate take-down of the download page, which of course means that AutoPatcher is probably history. As much as we disagree, we can do very little, and although the download page is merely a collection of mirrors, we took the download page down.

This is just one of the many helpful tips we have posted, You can find more stories here,
