Problem: I cannot check for updates, it says “Some settings are managed by your system administrator”
So, you can’t get windows update because some yahoo in IT blocked your access, eh?
First, type gpedit.msc in run,
In the window drill down User configuration>administrative templates>windows components>windows Update. In the right pane double click on remove access to access all windows update features and make it disabled.
If that doesn’t work, change the following key:
Disable and remove links to Windows Update
(User ConfigurationAdministrativeTemplatesStart Menu & Taskbar)
There are a few other keys and settings that could affect it.
