Hi, @markz

we are working on that script will update you once it has completed.


We revised the script to disable the “updates are available” popup in Windows 10. So please try the script in your environment and revert back with your feedbacks.


  1. Please run this script as a System User in ITSM.
    2)Please restart the machine to reflect the changes to endpoint.
    3)This script only applicable to Windows 10.
    4)If still this popup occurs, we can further discuss in the remote discussion.

Thank You
