    I have only one user account on this Win 7 Ulti computer and it is the admin account.
    Yet, when I go into the Windows Update Settings, I am told that “Some settings are manages by your systems administrator”….

    The problem came up, when I wanted to update the Win Defender definitions. I got an error code 0x8024003e

    Thank you....

    Remove the group policies
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

    I always use simplex update anyway, so I remove this complete folder?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

    Seems to work fine

    Thank You
