IE settings in GPO. Temporary internet files

Can someone tell me the exact location to edit so IE will "automatically check for new versions" in GPO? I attached a pic. Thanks

Make sure the group policy is set to Preference mode:

1. Open the Group Policy Object Editor snap-in.
Click Browse to select the GPO that you want, and then click Finish .
2. in the console tree of Group Policy Management Editor
Expand the GPO-> User Configuration -> Windows Settings-> Internet Explorer Maintenance
3. Right-click Internet Explorer Maintenance , and then click Preference Mode.
Afterwards, the Advanced folder appears under Internet Explorer Maintenance in the console tree.
4. Select "Advanced" folder, double-click "Corporate Settings" in the right area of the console
5. In the dialog box of "Corporate Settings Properties", expand "corporate settings" and then select "Temporary Internet Files (Users)", in the right side of the dialog box, you may modify the settings as you wish.

On my gpo it tells me "I cannot switch modes because settings are currently stored in this GPO . ..." Does this mean I have to create a whole new GPO just to apply these settings and cant make changes to the one I have?
