Windows Update settings page on version 1703

8 posts in this topic

I recently updated Windows 10 to version 1703, the so-called "Creators Update", and everything seemed to go fine.

However, a strange thing has suddenly appeared on my Windows Update settings page.

At the top, it now says, in red, "*Some settings are hidden or managed by your organisation".

This was not there straight after the update, it suddenly appeared a while later, and I haven't knowingly changed anything that would have made it appear.

It's also there on the page if I click on "Advanced options", but nowhere else.

Anyone any idea what is actually hidden or disabled here, and why?

I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64bit.

:dubbio:

Thanks, that's interesting that you're seeing the same thing on a clean install!
I suspect the notice appeared on mine after the first update was applied, which was a Flash Player update.
It definitely wasn't there straight away.
I'm just interested to know if everyone is seeing this, and what exactly is supposedly being "hidden" on the page!
I am of course an administrator on the system, so I can't imagine why anything would be hidden or disabled on Windows Update.
Searching online about this brings up virtually nothing, the only other references to that notice seem to apply to the customisation page where you change things like the lock screen image, where it appears if you have things disabled using Group Policy settings.
I couldn't find any references to it appearing on the Windows Update page.
:dubbio:

Applying any WU group policies, or disabling Delivery Optimization will make it show

Well I certainly haven't applied any group policies.
How would you disable "Delivery Optimization"?
I will check that out, although I haven't done it knowingly.

I have the same, as you can see on the screenshot. (In Dutch). I am using Windows 10 Pro 1507 x64

I have done some things in gpedit.msc, but nothing regarding Windows Update. I have disabled the Windows Update service though, and removed almost every UWP app, and disabled the Cortana search.

Check if this registry path exist

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

Sorry for the delay in responding.

It does exist, and contains a single DWORD entry "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers" which is set to 0.

Since I last posted here, I've found some more people asking about this on the MS help forums, but no answer as yet.

:no:
