Samsung deliberately disabling Windows Update | Debugging and reverse engineering

TL; DR

If you have installed Samsung’s SW Update software then you MAY have Windows Update disabled EVEN AFTER the removal of Samsung’s SW Update software.

Check the Folder %ProgramData%\Samsung folder (usually C:\ProgramData\Samsung) and remove “Disable_Windowsupdate.exe“.  Also, check for any scheduled tasks that run this program.
