I have a VB Script which i want to remove a prompt from.  The script connects to WSUS, looks for updats, downloads them and then prompts if you want to install.

i want to remove the prompt to install and just get the script to install them straight away

the script is  
Set updateSession = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.Session")
Set updateSearcher = updateSession.CreateupdateSearcher()

WScript.Echo "Searching for updates..." & vbCRLF

Set searchResult = _
updateSearcher.Search("IsInstalled=0 and Type='Software'")

WScript.Echo "List of applicable items on the machine:"

For I = 0 To searchResult.Updates.Count-1
    Set update = searchResult.Updates.Item(I)
    WScript.Echo I + 1 & "> " & update.Title

If searchResult.Updates.Count = 0 Then
	WScript.Echo "There are no applicable updates."
End If

WScript.Echo vbCRLF & "Creating collection of updates to download:"

Set updatesToDownload = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.UpdateColl")

For I = 0 to searchResult.Updates.Count-1
    Set update = searchResult.Updates.Item(I)
    WScript.Echo I + 1 & "> adding: " & update.Title 

WScript.Echo vbCRLF & "Downloading updates..."

Set downloader = updateSession.CreateUpdateDownloader() 
downloader.Updates = updatesToDownload

WScript.Echo  vbCRLF & "List of downloaded updates:"

For I = 0 To searchResult.Updates.Count-1
    Set update = searchResult.Updates.Item(I)
    If update.IsDownloaded Then
       WScript.Echo I + 1 & "> " & update.Title 
    End If

Set updatesToInstall = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.UpdateColl")

WScript.Echo  vbCRLF & _
"Creating collection of downloaded updates to install:" 

For I = 0 To searchResult.Updates.Count-1
    set update = searchResult.Updates.Item(I)
    If update.IsDownloaded = true Then
       WScript.Echo I + 1 & "> adding:  " & update.Title 
    End If

WScript.Echo  vbCRLF & "Would you like to install updates now? (Y/N)"
strInput = WScript.StdIn.Readline

If (strInput = "N" or strInput = "n") Then 
ElseIf (strInput = "Y" or strInput = "y") Then
	WScript.Echo "Installing updates..."
	Set installer = updateSession.CreateUpdateInstaller()
	installer.Updates = updatesToInstall
	Set installationResult = installer.Install()
	'Output results of install
	WScript.Echo "Installation Result: " & _
	WScript.Echo "Reboot Required: " & _ 
	installationResult.RebootRequired & vbCRLF 
	WScript.Echo "Listing of updates installed " & _
	 "and individual installation results:" 
	For I = 0 to updatesToInstall.Count - 1
		WScript.Echo I + 1 & "> " & _
		updatesToInstall.Item(i).Title & _
		": " & installationResult.GetUpdateResult(i).ResultCode 		
End If
