"DisableWindowsUpdateAccess" always automatically turn to 1

In my a sony computor, the key in registry \hkey_local_machine\software\policies\microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate
always automatically generate a reg_dword “DisableWindowsUpdateAccess” value 1.
Whatevery and however i do, it always automatically added after some time.
I use comodo internet security, microsoft security essencials, comodo system-cleaner and etc, no virus found, no malware found.
I deleted every account in \hkey_local_machine\sam\sam\ execpt myself and only myself left. that is the original administrator and guest account also been deleted. i even deleted every network group and account in SAM\Domains\Biltin.
Still the “DisableWindowsUpdateAccess” (value 1) is alway automatically generated.
I also limited everyones’ access to that key. Still doesn’t work.

Hope, really hope some one could help me. thanks indeed!

Please do a scan with MBAM; just to make sure this behavior isn’t caused by malware. If that not helps, you can use WinPatrol for blocking changes in the registry for the specific locations.

I would recommend a system restore; Especially after removing built-in accounts;

Unless of course this Windows Installation is in VM,

Whats your OS?


Are you using Comodo Programs Manager?

Why did you do that? Do you realize that could have broken a lot of things?

Why not create a dummy registry for that spot <—please note I have never tried that because I have never been in that situation, but it’s just an idea

I also use Comodo internet security premium Defense+ to protect the registry keys. Yesterday, it happend again. In the mean time, i also blocked every income and outcome connection by windows firewall and comodo firewall. Only IE and Chrome can go out.

I also tried restore to original factory statous, even before i connect to internet, the “DisableWindowsUpdateAccess” key automatically added with some other key.

I talked with sony sevice person, nothing can do.

I hope I can connet to some security service to have the notebook completely scanned.

CPM will disable automatic updates of Windows. It’s a known bug.
