    Set Access Protection to Maintenance Mode for Windows Updates

    prichter

      As you may know, certain options in Access Protection will prevent some Windows Updates from installing which results in an hours long reboot-update-fail-revert changes cycle that drives users and admins mad.  My solution has been to create an Access Protection policy called "Maintenance Mode" which turns off most of the options in Access Protection that usually cause trouble with Windows Updates and other installations.  Of course, having to manually change this for my customers is quite annoying as well.  Is there a way to automate or schedule the changing of an Access Protection Policy or, can I schedule a move of computers from one Group to another Group?  If not, how else does one handle Windows Updates and still have Access Protection locked down?  In my experience, Access Protection is the best defense against viruses and malware.
