Windows 7: How can I unblock windows 10 updates?

How can I unblock windows 10 updates?


Back when the Windows Anniversary update was released, I had a lot of trouble with it on my Computer so I uninstalled it and blocked it from installing again through Windows update.

It's been a little while now and I'm willing to update.

The only problem is, Windows Update won't show me build 1607 anymore because I blocked it, is there any way to unblock it? I can't find the option anywhere to do so.

edit: apologies for posting this on a Win7 site, but not sure if anyone is familiar with Win 10?
