Re: 2000 SP4 Released - Officially
Date: Fri Jun 27 2003 - 20:30:03 CDT
You have to use a group or local policy via importing wuau.adm to properly
Unlike sp3, one cannot edit the update.inf file included with the sp4 to
remove the autoupdate and bits services as sp4 knows the checksum of that
file it seems and will not start if it's been modified. In addition
changing sysoc.inf 's auto update listing to be unhidden and then trying to
uninstall it does not function as expected either, At least not when I tried
it. I'm sure some love it but perhap some like me are out there that get
really annoyed at the fact microsoft is shoving this down our throats
without any easy way to not have it installed. At least in win2003 when you
unregister wuaueng.dll the sucker uninstalls itself fairly cleanly. If
microsoft had a track record of always pushing out rock solid 'fixes' then
perhaphs I would not be so annoyed. They day I trust microsoft to
auto-update my system is years off, if ever.
PS anyone else notice the interesting additions to the sp4 eula about DRM.

Please be aware that if you are like us and have disabled automatic updates
that SP4 will re-enable it ! We disabled the service, and after
installing SP4 is was enabled and running.
