  • Look at the keys in that folder, if they look something like this:

          "WUStatusServer"="http://SERVER:8530"
  • Right click on "WindowsUpdate" key > click Export this to a .reg file to be safe
  • Delete the "WindowsUpdate" key from the registry at  HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdates
