I have the same issue on Windows Home ver after the last update.
Called Windows Update and they had me run DSIM ,,, RestoreHealth @ Admin then SFScannow - no change.
It seams that Searching for Windows Update under the "Old Win7" links causes the permission problem for Settings and Advanced Settings Links.
I can now only get to the (Pitiful) Windows Update Settings by going thru the Win10 Menu
My main associated problem (not StarDoc) is those idiots at Microsoft still think it is OK to REBOOT my machine without the Users Permission.
