A co-worker gave me this a while back:

Dim WSHShell
'Create the wscript Shell object, which contains the Registry methods
Set WSHShell = wscript.CreateObject("wscript.Shell")

'*** Stop the Automatic Updates service *****************

WSHShell.Run "net stop wuauserv"
Wscript.Sleep 10000

'********************************************************
'***** Set Automatic Updates start type to Automatic ************

WSHShell.RegWrite
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv\start", 2,
"REG_DWORD"
Wscript.Sleep 5000

'*********************************************************
'**** Configure settings for Automatic Updates *******************

WSHShell.RegWrite
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU\NoA

'*******************************************************

I have noticed that scripts regarding Windows Update settings do not seem to appear in gpedit.msc even though things are working properly.
