I recently applied windows updates to my servers as well as the latest release of Network Monitor (16.3.25.6124).

Now my servers (Win 2012) servers are reporting down for my Windows Update Status. The sensor shows Timeout PE018. I've searched the knowledge base, and even followed the suggestion of adding the HTTP Activation service to the PRTG server.

Please advise how I can get this sensor working correctly for many of my servers.

What interval are you using for the sensor? If it's anything below 24h, please set it to the same and see if it works out. If not, please execute the following command on the target host in an administrative PowerShell:

Measure-Command {$searcher = (New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.Session).CreateUpdateSearcher();$searcher.Search("Type='Software'").Updates | Sort-Object -Property Dates -Descending | ft -autosize IsInstalled, MsrcSeverity}

...and post the result.
