in your WSUS Server are you Automatically approving updates??

If so what all options are selected there, I would think that IE7 if at all would be under Feature Packs, so it what was not automatic I would assume 99% that i will not,  May need another to chime in here on it but I feel this is correct.

I assume in the computer settings of Group Policy that you have instructed the machine to get its updates from your WSUS Server, in the User Settings under start menu and taskbar there is a policy remove links and access to windows update, see if this sounds like what you are looking for...

Prevents users from connecting to the Windows Update Web site.

This setting blocks user access to the Windows Update Web site at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com. Also, the setting removes the Windows Update hyperlink from the Start menu and from the Tools menu in Internet Explorer.

Windows Update, the online extension of Windows, offers software updates to keep a user’s system up-to-date. The Windows Update Product Catalog determines any system files, security fixes, and Microsoft updates that users need and shows the newest versions available for download.

Also, see the "Hide the "Add programs from Microsoft" option" setting.

Hope this helps

IE 7 is suposed to be comming in as a "High priority Update"  Note - NOT a critical or security update.  High priority updates do not, generally, automatically apply and will not show up in the default Critical and Security update group in WSUS.  This is according to MS.  We shall see how it actually comes in.  You shouldn't have to mess around with the update blocker stuff if all your clients are set to get their updates from WSUS.
