    After AU installed updates from WSUS, a dialog box was presented asking a
    logged-on non-administrator for a reboot. However, the 'Restart Later'
    button was disabled. How can I make it enabled? Group policy 'No
    auto-restart' is enabled and 'non-administrator to receive notification' is
    enabled. Another problem is that even though 'non-administrator receive
    notification' is enabled, non-administrator did not see an icon in the system
    tray about available of dowloaded updates.

  2. This is normal for that configuration.
    (a) Enable the policy "Allow non-admins to receive update notifications",or
    (b) Make the user an Administrator.

    Before doing either, however, you should become intimately familiar with the
    ramifications of delaying a restart after installation of updates, including
    the ramifications of installing updates during the workday, as well as the
    ramifications of granting full 'admin' access to the WUA user interface --
    which includes permissions to 'deselect' updates, which could further result
    in a security update /never/ being installed.

    If the "Allow non-admins to receive update notifications" is already enabled,
    then the disabling of the "Restart Later" button could be caused by:
    (a) the User policy "Remove access to all Windows Update features" is
    enabled, or
    (b) the update was marked with a deadline.
    This would be an indication that the "Remove access to all Windows Update
    features" user policy is enabled.
