Script fix via Manuel F. Gil
Flash appears to have helped a machine that was last updated in June 2016 (that
wouldn't gather updates after 3 days of searching for them)
1st without Windows Update running (perhaps fresh reboot and run as 1st task)

SETTINGS ARE MANAGED BY YOUR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR
using Windows 7 Home Premium, and I've been encountering difficulties in Windows
Updates Settings. I want to change my settings on Windows Updates so I can
install important software from the Internet. But the problem is it prompts this
message "SOME SETTINGS ARE MANAGED BY YOUR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR
I can confirm this worked for me as well.
So I deleted everything here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
except the value name (Default).
You might want to take a look in your
and see if there's anything there. You'll need to delete both, or you'll
still get an error. Just leave the default in both. Hope this helps.
