Is the options greyed out? If so, perform these actions.

Navigate to this location in the registry,

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

You can safely delete everything in the right-hand pane. But if you are
unsure (make a back-up), export the reg entries. Right-click on AU and
select export. If you need to restore the keys, simply double-click the
exported files.
