I have a group policy that is showing extra registry settings.  I am using a Windows 2000 domain and my pc is Windows XP SP2.  I've seen on the web that this is a problem but I'm not sure how to fix it.  One of my major issues with this is I have 2 Windows 2003 Terminal Servers that are unable to run Windows Update.  If I use the Resultant Set of Policy I see where Windows update is disabled.  I just cannot figure out where to change to group policy.  I have ran the KB842933 update for my Windows 2000 Domain Controllers and that fixed the following error I was seeing "The following entry in the [strings] section is too long and has been truncated".  Again the problem is I cannot find where to change the Extra Registry settings.  Any help would be appreciated.
