    Thanks, this worked for me. I had a user with Windows 8.1 that wasn't Pro or Enterprise and couldn't get in to group policy or local policy to make any changes as a result. I think this problem originated with some malware, but this at least got it so the updates are accessible now. WU is broken still, but at least now it isn't a permissions thing and I can troubleshoot the individual components from here.

    Hello ismailabouhleka, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Please provide more details about your issue. I'm not sure what you mean.

    @Brink, Thanks for the .reg file, helps a lot on Home editions of Windows 7 that somehow get locked out of these settings.
