Update settings?

After removing/disabling W10 update, my windows update settings have changed. Have lost the box which earlier was checked for Recommended updates for MS products.

Though I still get updates for Office etc.

Any thoughts, suggestions, on how to bring it back.

Care to have a look at the screen shot.

Thanks.

I would keep those settings, but uncheck those 2 boxes

Not sure why it changed, it should look like this.

Thanks for suggesting to uncheck the only 2 boxes left, but why or how did I lose the lower 2 boxes and is possible to get them back?

Thanks.

Did you try the steps that I linked to earlier?
Go to that tutorial.
Scroll down to step 7.
Below the image that looks like yours are some steps to try to get those options back.

Here is the link to the tutorial again:
