Option to disable Windows Update

See status update history

As a patch administrator if I am using ZENworks Patch Management I want there to be an option to have ZENworks disable the Windows Update service so that only patches that I deploy through ZPM are being applied to my devices.

Happy Path:
1) At the zone, folder or device level I can set a setting to disable Windows update
2) On refresh the device disables the Windows update agent so that only patches deployed through ZENworks are available.
