Automatic updates enabled; cannot disable
I just placed three identical (and brand new) Win XP Pro computers at a
client site, and on one of them, Automatic Updates is enabled, but the option
to disable is not available; all options are grayed out within the Automatic
Updates Control Panel applet.

The Automatic Updates service is running, and I can even restart it, but to
no avail. I have also tried logging on as both domain & local administrator,
but it is the same both ways.

I ran all Windows updates before adding the computers to the domain, and
this seems to have happened somewhere during the process of adding them to
the domain, adding network printers, etc. Again, it happened to only one, so
there must be some permissions issue somewhere that was inadvertently
adjusted.

Ideas?

RE: Automatic updates enabled; cannot disable
goto start>run>regedit
goto this location
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\WindowsUpdate\AU

In the right-pane, delete the two values AUOptions and NoAutoUpdate

all the best !!!!!!!!

Worked perfectly.

Thank you very much.

I support about 200 workstations spread amongst about 30 small-business
clients, and it seems like I am always seeing something like this that I have
never seen before. Any idea what might cause the change of settings?
