    Updates and patches

    Anyone using NetChk Protect or other patch management software instead
    of Windows Update? I've been using NetChk since they made it free for
    individual use, but it's no longer free, and they're set up more for
    Fortune 500 companies. It's pretty slick though, installs multiple
    updates at once, manages all the reboots, avoids WGA issues...

    I am not sure, as I have used neither, but this might be a bit similar:
