In the group policy for WSUS, where is configured to restrict users from going to www.microsoft.com/updates and allowing users to update their computers, force users to perform an update and set the time where updates are sent out to the computers?  Any assitance offered would be greatly appreciated.

Hi regsamp,
under Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Update you'll find "Configure Automatic Updates", to set the time for updating the clients and you'll also find the options to prevent the users from stopping the updates.

User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Windows Update.  The setting is called “Remove access to use all Windows Update features”.
