Re: My opinion on this?

Hmm, this is nothing more than a tool to automate the creation/destruction of 2 registry keys.

Surrounded (as typical for GRC) with a great deal of fanfare, like its some major achievement.

He moans about the file size being 56k, well, here you go, in 244 bytes.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx]

"DisableGwx"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]

"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001

Because all the program does is create or delete those 2 keys.

That's it.. And this is new information how exactly?
