“Some settings are managed by your organization” preventing you from downloading Windows Updates?

A lot of resources online aren’t solving the problem… here’s how to fix it.

  • Open regedit
  • Choose the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate key and look around – I found a NoAutoUpdate entry under AU.
  • Delete the offending key, restart… you should be good to go.
