The place I just started working has sbs 2000 server and the only way I can update end user systems is to login on each user system with administrator account for the whole domain. Even if I use my password which has admin rights it will not allow me to install critical updates. I looked in Group Policies and it does not even look like anything is configured. It seems to me like it a rights issue something with the active directory but I can not figure it out. Any ideas would be very helpful thanks.

What do you mean nothing looks like it is configured?  Are you sure your clients are pointed at the WSUS server?   Do you have it set to automatically install on its own without client interaction?

I just dont know why I can update a system even when I login as a local admin I can not goto windows update site and do critical updates I can only do critical updates if I log in as a domain administrator. I did set the server up soI am not sure if it is something inactive AD or what i just dont know why I cant but seems like a rights issue.
