I want to hide Windows update option under settings==>Update & Security for all Client computers in Our corporate network. This can be configured through GPO setting but it I suspect that it will apply only to computers regardless if it's an admin user or regular domain user Whos using the computer. I dont want to hide this option for admin users.

Another option is to configure this through registry at "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer" and create the string value "SettingsPagevisibility". The value must be configured as "hide:windowsupdate" (without quotes). The problem is that this registry setting is not being Applied and i've tried it several times, Google searched to verify if there is something i've missed but unfortunately it's not working.

My idea is to use a PS script where this setting will be created, then configure a GPO that runs this script at logon, delegate it to required secuirty group and link the GPO at required OU.

Hope I can get help on this

Kind regards
