Start:Run:type:'gpedit.msc' press enter

If Group Policy Object Editor opens than go to:
Computer(or User) Configuration:Administrative Templates:Windows Components:Windows Update Double-click "Configure Automatic Updates"
Set it to "Not configured"

Note: In case it is already set to "Not configured", enable the Policy and revert the setting back to "Not configured". This resets any registry based Policy if set already.
