I want to use Kace to disable windows updates, but I can't get the default script to work. Does anybody have any tricks to get it to work or a script that they use? We are running Windows 7

Best practice is to use GPO to control Windows Updates among your network.

A couple different ways to try:

Batch script:

 reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f
REM add this next line to disable the AU service
sc config wuauserv start= disabled
