Read on for all command line options

From a dump of the .exe (W2k3 R2 version ) we can extract the following options:
/DetectNow
/ReportNow
/RunHandlerComServer
/RunStoreAsComServer
/ShowSettingsDialog
/ResetAuthorization
/ResetEulas
/ShowWU
/ShowWindowsUpdate
/SelfUpdateManaged
/SelfUpdateUnmanaged
/UpdateNow
/ShowWUAutoScan
/ShowFeaturedUpdates
/ShowOptions
/ShowFeaturedOptInDialog
/DemoUI

The command ‘wuauclt /ResetAuthorization /DetectNow’ is a good way to “reset” WU if required

“wuauclt /demoui” is a good way to mess with peoples computers. Try setting up a task to run it every 10 minutes!
