I used Method 3, but still no luck.....do I need to logoff/restart the machine that I just edited?  thx

No, i don't think a reboot is needed.  The article is written so that you begin your troubleshooting with method 1... if method 1 doesn't resolve your problem move to method 2, if method 2 doesn't resolve your problem, move to method 3...etc

So, it would seem that you might have to continue to method 4  

I would start at method 1 and then move forward if you need to...

None of the methods will allow a user that is NOT a member of the administrators group to run Windows Update.

The solution really is to add users to the local administrators group if you want them to run windows update, and then institute a Software Restriction Policy which will not allow them to install other things.  

Alternatively you can use Windows Software Update Services to push the updates out to the client workstations.
