    I keep getting this error whenever I try to go to the Windows Update page.

    Access Denied


    Network policy settings prevent you from using Windows Update to download and install updates on your computer.

    If you believe you have received this message in error, please check with your system administrator.

    I am logged in as the System admin and I can't seem to get it to work.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Dword value: NoWindowsUpdate

    Gives the same error as

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate\
    DisableWindowsUpdateAccess

    Double click this entry and change the value to 0 (zero) or right click it and select Delete.

    Or just use the script attached
