I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

When you see that message, it is typically caused by Group Policies that take precedence over your local interface.  You would potentially need to double-check with the IT staff that has configured your GPO pertaining to automatic updates to see if your machine could be moved to an OU that is exempt.

If it wasn't you personally, at some point it time a person on your IT support staff configured a group policy that dictates how automatic updates are applied.

It sounds like this machine is on a domain, correct?  If so, your options are rather limited.  The machine should be getting automatic updates through the domain already, so you wouldn't need to take any action.  But if the machine isn't attached to the domain, won't be any time soon, and you really want/need to install Windows updates, you would need to either install them manually or take that machine and remove it from the domain.  In a workgroup configuration, you could then modify the settings locally.

There are pros & cons involved with all of these options.

If there are people on your IT support team who have configured your domain group policies before, it would be a big help if they could chime in and help you in person.

Here are a pair of guides from the Microsoft web pages that should help:

I found the answer. You need to write a reg file and run in to the systems. Before runing new registry file. You need to delete the stored registry file by typing regedit.
