Re: Windows update + background processes - can I control?

The simple answer is YES, you can control Windows Update and its related services. Just be aware that Microsoft interrogates your devices and, if it finds you have fiddled with the defaults, will often return them to the defaults. Windows Update - as the umbrella term - consists of four services if ...

Re: antivir related popups

I haven't used Avira for a while but the popups were the 'In Product Messaging' process.

If you mean PowerShell cmdlets then it's very easy to wrap them in AHK.

It's also fairly easy to build queries and redirect output, for example: psS...

If you mean in Windows 10 then it looks like it may depend on what version you are using.
