Create .reg file and paste, save, then execute:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"AUOptions"=dword:00000002
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003
"ScheduledInstallEveryWeek"=dword:00000001

Notes

AUOptions

  • 2 - Notify for download and auto install
  • 3 - Auto download and notify for install
  • 4 - Auto download and schedule the install
  • 5 - Allow local admin to choose setting

NoAutoUpdate Leave as 0 and do not delete. This is a Windows XP value, however setting the "AUOptions" in group policy, automatically creates this value, so there must be a reason for it.

ScheduledInstallDay
Supposedly only used "if" Number 4 in AUOption is selected, however created in registry regardless of the setting choice.

  • 0 - Everyday
  • 1 - Every Sunday
  • 2 - Every Monday
  • 3 - Every Tuesday
  • 4 - Every Wednesday
  • 5 - Every Thursday
  • 6 - Every Friday
  • 7 - Every Saturday

ScheduledInstallEveryWeek
Assuming 1 = enabled. No idea what this is for.

ScheduledInstallTime
Note: Only the last two numbers will change.

00000000 - 00000009 = 00:00 - 09:00
0000000a - 0000000f = 10:00 - 15:00
00000010 - 00000017 = 16:00 - 23:00
