Hey thanks a bunch it works on windows 7 too. Same problem as the one stated above!
But actually i am more interested what has caused this to happen?
Do you know why? Whats the group policy thing? My computer is mostly just used by myself.

Actually you can ignore the top question, more importantly, after applying the reg file, i get this whenever i press the windows update button manually. Any way to fix this? I still want to see what updates are available every now and then.

Ok. You can download and merge the .reg file I attached below, and approve all prompts to remove all Windows Update group policies. Sign out and in of Windows afterwards to fully apply, then see if you are able to set your Windows Update settings. :)
thanks , works like a charme for me!

Brink, on page one, you posted a .reg file to merge and fix this issue.

I can't thank you enough. I have been beating my head against the wall for two weeks. Searching for different key word combo's. Today I tried a different approach and BINGO.

Problem solved, now I can check for updates and get some restore points going.

Again, Huge Thank you.

same problem

I recently came across the same problem. I followed your link, took the correct steps, ect... I went to reinstall quickbooks on my laptop and i am given an error prompt Code 0x80240017 ( i am also told my windows module installer service is not available on this computer) this is a prompt for .net framework which i knew was required for quickbooks. in short does the fix u recommended for the update error clash with letting me download certain windows services. my laptop is a hp 15 ts notebook pc if that helps

I am having the same issue with my settings, do i still do the same thing? I am not really sure what you mean by "merge the .reg file "
This is how my settings look
