"In Windows 7/Vista right below the managed by system administrator message is a link you can click that allows you to search for updates from Windows Updates.

The settings are specified via the GPO wish is most likely implemented by your corporate IT department. The only way to overridden this is to change the GPO directly, however this will get overridden the next time you connect to the corporate network.

The easiest way would be to request to be removed from the Windows Update group. However if you want to override it manually this article will give you the registry keys to edit to change it. You can also do it through the Local Policy Editor by following these instructions."

"I fixed the issue (of a question marked as a dupe of this one) by running the following .reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate]"
