Have any of you computer kings figured out how to disable the "Windows Update needs your help" notification that appears after 30 days of no windows 8 updates? Is there a registry fix for this yet? Apparently you can't stop this occurance from control panel.

 

This is just a little bit rediculous if the computer remains offline and never connects to Windows update servers.

 

Here is what the screen looks like:

Existing Forum on the interwebs for this problem:

"Windows Update Needs Your Help" pops up every 20 SECONDS?!?!  Even if it were true that Windows Update wasn't working, it would still be pure insanity to interrupt a user's work EVERY TWENTY SECONDS because of such a problem.  But in this case, it's nonsense: Windows Update successfully checked for updates TODAY.

Since Bill Gates left, Microsoft is obviously run by incompetent boobs.

I ran into this issue when working on a Windows 8.0 laptop.  The fix for this case was to run disk cleanup and select "Clean up system files" and wait for the utility to run.  I then cleaned up ALL system files and folders.  It appears that the laptop was upgrading from 8.0 to 8.1 and was either shut down before the update finished (a three hour process) or the update failed.  In any case the error message no longer appears every 20 seconds

I've never seen this. On my systems I generally do updates (well the subset of available updates which I consider to be worth doing) within a few days but I've used machines which haven't been updated for weeks on end and never seen this. I wonder if it's something that has been introduced in one of the many updates to the windows update client(wuauclt) which came out a few months back? Oh hang on, that first post is very old, too old to be something caused by relatively recent updates to wuauclt.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
