Patch Remedy auto fixes the error in your Windows Update registry value that has Windows Updates disabled

Patch Remedy auto fixes the error in your Windows Update registry value that has Windows Updates disabled

New in Patch Remedy 1.0.3.94, now monitors for and will update the Windows Update registry value that has Windows Updates disabled when error 0x80240025 is seen. This error denotes a Group Policy setting. If you check the registry for the DisableWindowsUpdateAccess key, you will likely find the following: HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate S-1-5-18 maps to the SYSTEM ACCOUNT. To correct the problem, either set the value to 0 or delete the key. You may also need to check that you do not have a Group Policy that continues to set this value to 1 to avoid the problem from happening after a policy is refreshed.

The Patch Remedy 1.0.3.94 now sets the registry D-Word value to “0” for HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate\DisableWindowsUpdateAccess if the checkbox on the configure tab is set to auto fix the error. 

Check the autofix box to allow Patch Remedy to look for and to re-enable Windows Update if disabled.
