    "Check for Updates" option is greyed out


    Hi ,I am using Windows 10 Pro and the ""Check for Updates" option is greyed out .

    In the past I had changed some registry and group policy settings to stop windows update but now I want to update windows and forgot which settings I've changed.

    Is there anyway to roll back the changes I've made and update windows?

    I am attaching the images showing the specific group policy and registry settings that are affecting windows update.

    Start Option Greyed out under Personalisation - Start.

    Please note my reply to your questions in Bold:- Latest Build is Vers.1511-10586.318

    Please note my reply in Bold :- Build is Vers. 1511-10586.318

    Follow the steps to know the latest build installed.

    • Press Windows key + R and type winver and hit Enter.

    I would suggest you to check and install any latest Windows Updates available.

    1. Go to Start and then Settings.

    2. Click on Update and Recovery.

    3. Check for updates under Windows Updates.

    4. Restart the system and check if the issue is resolved. The Windows 10 system is set to Automatic update and as such does have the latest.

    Just to remind you that the "Settings" option is not greyed out in Administrator mode so I don't think the updates would affect this.

    Windows 10 Windows Installer (msiserver) greyed out

    I have tried to un-grey the properties in Windows Installer which is continually showing as 'running' but nothing is being installed. When I do try and update I get the 'another installation is happening' error message. It's set to manual. I've clicked
    on 'more actions' and it is still greyed out. Any other suggestions as at the moment I can't update anything.

    HyperSLI (Enabling SLI on non-sli motherboards)

    To turn off windows updates in windows 7 follow these steps:

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
    then in the option bar select 'Never check for updates'.
