Reviews for this release

I've been using it since its first alpha. Couldn't live without it. Great app and always delivers what it suppose to. Good notification delivery system for missing updates as well.

I've been using WUN for a long time now and it still is invaluable to me. I can turn off Windows Update and still get notified about updates that I can install at a time of my own choosing. It provides the options that Microsoft should already have.

Excellent app that I could not do without now. I love the way it automatically installs Defender updates. If you are not using it, you are missing out on the convenience of being notified when updates are available.
