0x80240037 Windows Update woes

After installing a Windows 7 x64 Sequence machine, I wanted to apply all patches via Windows Update.

But, Computer says noooo:

0x80240037 Microsoft Update kan niet op de computer worden geïnstalleerd

In English:

0x80240037 Microsoft Update cannot be installed on this computer.

For the record: I was logged in with an administrator account.

Solution: Remove the NoAutoUpdate key in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

Windows Update: NoAutoUpdate regkey

Windows Update: NoAutoUpdate regkey
