Windows Update Errors With Some Dell Referbished PCs

I recently purchased a referbed Dell XPS 15 and from day one Windows Update would fail. In my case the cause was a combination of Dell setting a registry key to override the update and status server address to an internal Dell IP and apparently not having the correct Windows Firewall rules in place.

I removed the registry key and ran the FixIt app here.

Note that some folks online are saying you can simply change the value UseWUServer to 0 to accomplish the same thing.
