Option Explicit
Dim objWService, objItem, objService
Dim colList, strService, intSleep, strComp
 
'Leave as is for local machine.
strComp = "."
 
'Time to wait until restart
intSleep = 15000
 
WScript.Echo " Click OK, then wait " & intSleep & " milliseconds"
 
strService = " 'updates' "
 
Set objWService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComp & "\root\cimv2")
 
Set colList = objWService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name ="_
& strService & " ")
 
For Each objService in colList
    objService.StopService()
    WSCript.Sleep intSleep
    objService.StartService()
Next
 
WScript.Echo "Your "& strService & " service has Started"
WScript.Quit
