"was wondering if anyone know how to change it back"

You can't.

It's dictated by Microsoft/Windows Update.

Jackcoms appears to be wrong.

Go to the Microsoft update page, select settings and scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the following -

'To stop using Microsoft Update
If you no longer want to install updates using this website, you can disable the supporting software on your computer.

You can still get updates from the Windows Update website by visiting the site or by turning on automatic updating on your computer. However, you will not be able to get updates for products other than Windows.

Disable Microsoft Update software and let me use Windows Update only'
