    I have Win2k, WinXP, and Win2003 computers.

    I have configured a GPO for windows updates and applied it the the OU.
    When I look at the clients registry, it appears that the have recieved
    the GPO but they are not following the GPO.

    What I want is for windows updates to be installed at night with no
    user intervention, option 4 when configuring windows updates. All the
    computers seem to get this option, as I can see in their registry, BUT
    when I push out the updates they immidiately go to the computers and
    prompt the user to install them. Although, on windows 2k machines the
    GPO seems to be working and the updates are applied in the evening at
    the specified time...Does this have something to do with SP2 on WinXP??
    In my GPO editor, it says "Supported on Win2003, WinXPSP1,
    Win2000SP3". Does this mean that it is not supported on SP2??

    Anyone have any thoughts??

    I have checked and rechecked my settings...They are all correct. And I
    know that they are working somewhat because on the local machine, if I
    go to automatic updates, automatic is dimmed because of the GPO
    settings..BUT the updates still come directly to the machine and asked
    to be installed...Can I disable something on the local client so that
    the sheild is never shown?? Maybe disable the security center service??
