    In our environment we are running 3 wsus 3.0 sp1 in a 2k3 ad environment and
    configure the clients using group policy and client side targeting. I'm
    finding there are 20 or 30 computers out of 1000+ which are no longer
    reporting into our wsus servers. I was looking in the registry and noticed
    that the HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windowsupdate key is
    missing. I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced this and knows what
    might cause that and what the fix might be. I can search for these computers
    on the wsus console and it finds them as if they had reported in at one time
    but not recenlty.

    the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\AutoUpdate
    key is present and in one particlare computer I checked shows a balloon time
    of 6/11/2008 a balloon type of 5 and a nextdetectiontime of 6/19. As this is
    6/18 it apears as if the computer knows it needs to check in.

    Was hoping someone could provide some assistance.
