Missing settings in Windows Update

I am having problems with the windows update settings. I want to turn on the setting to allow me to update windows and also all other Microsoft software on my computer. I have looked on other computers and this option is available however on my computer this option is not available. I have installed all available updates for my computer and still have not got these options available. What can I do to resolve this ?

option "Allow all users to install updates on this computer" has been greyed out? (Not clearly visible)

That option of "Allow all users on this computer to install updates on this computer is ticked.

Have you any idea how I can resolve this issue ?

From the "Check for updates" screen you should see an option for "Get updates for other Microsoft Products" if you select that you will get an option for "Tell me more" this will allow you to add the Microsoft Updates option. After you have done that it will then show the options you are currently not seeing on your Windows 7 machine.

Change how Windows installs or notifies you about updates
where you get stuck?
Do you see:

3.In the Windows Update dialog box, click Find out more under Get updates for other Microsoft products. Follow the steps on the screen to start using Microsoft Update.
4.In the left pane, click Change settings.
5.Under Microsoft Update, select the Give me updates for Microsoft products and check for new optional Microsoft software when I update Windows check box.
6.To get notifications of new Microsoft software, select the Show me detailed notifications when new Microsoft software is available check box.
