Fix – Network policy settings prevent you from using this website – Windows Update

Even though no group policy was in affect I ran accross this on one of my domain computers.

A simple registry edit and it fixed the problem.
Do a registry search using regedit.exe, be sure to have “My Computer” selected when starting each search for registry values with name:

NoWindowsUpdate

DisableWindowsUpdateAccess

NoAutoUpdate

If any of these are found and are set to a 1 change to 0.  1 is on and 0 is off.
