Looks like Samsung is finally getting around to patching the SW Update software that has been disabling Windows Update. The company has issued a statement on the issue, which was initially discovered earlier this week, and vowed to correct the problem "in the coming days."
Samsung has a commitment to security and we continue to value our partnership with Microsoft. We will be issuing a patch through the Samsung Software Update notification process to revert back to the recommended automatic Windows Update settings within a few days. Samsung remains committed to providing a trustworthy user experience and we encourage customers with product questions or concerns to contact us directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG.
