Terminal Server pop ups

I am deplying my first real terminal server.   I am running MS Windows 2003 Server and I am using HP Thin clients to conect to the network.  This is working great.  I am just learning about security with Terminal Server. I am currently usning pretty much the default security for the users.  I did have to grant some extra rights to be able to run Liant cobol runtime.  Anyways here is my problem:

When I do, or the server does and os update and it pop ups the message "Server needs to be restarted, Restart now, restart later"  that message is popped up on all the users.  The users have no rights to click anything on this message so it comes up and they cannot do anything to get rid of it.  It stays on top of all the other windows.  What I want is that NO server messages get displayed on the normal users.  Is there a way to do that?

Also I am running McAfee Pilot Project which uses a MS SQL instance and the sql service icon is displayed on everybodies profile and any user can shut it down.  Is there away to restict that as well?

The other thing is I want to disable the Language toolbar for each user but when I log in as the user and disable it the next time it comes back.  Is there a way I can turn it off as an admin for everybody?

Thanks in advance

If you want no messages to pop up change your automatic updates so that it does not install or download that way you will manually have to run windows update.

Right click my computer and click on the automatic updates tab and change it to not use AU. You should not really use them here as you may get grief with users doing stuff they should not or schedule the update for later in the evening when they are gone home.

I would say for the SQL instance you could probably remove the serice icon from startup check in registry under run section or in all users startup. SQL does not actually need it as it just allows you to start stop etc which you can from services.msc anyway.

As for language normally I remove all other languages from the languages section once done with that then remove the tab, it thens to pop up as there are multiple languages configured such as english (uk) and english (usa).
