WUMT is a viable Windows Update alternative

When it comes to handling Windows updates, WUMT offers several options bound to appeal to Windows admins and power users alike. And the price is right -- WUMT is freeware.

WUMT is short for Windows Update MiniTool, a free software tool that handles Windows updates without requiring use of the built-in Update & Security facility in Windows 10. WUMT, which originally appeared on the Wilders Security Forums in October 2015, comes from an anonymous Russian translator who goes by "Mr. X." He maintains the tool on a Spanish language page on blogspot, where he regularly updates the program, currently numbered 30.09.2016 (which corresponds to its release date at the end of September 2016). You can also download the tool from MajorGeeks.com.

Why use a Windows Update alternative?

When it comes to handling Windows updates, WUMT offers several options bound to appeal to Windows admins and power users alike, specifically:

  • User-driven update selection: Where the built-in update facility in Windows 10 takes an "all-or-nothing" stance on downloading updates, WUMT provides checkboxes so that users can select those they wish to download. This makes it easy for corporate admins who tend to manage drivers themselves to eschew Microsoft-supplied driver downloads.
