permissions for the network service account and wsus 3.0 sp1

Hello guys and thanks for your time and input.  
Here's my scenario and question:
On Wednesday around 4pm (est), I finished installing wsus 3.0 on a windows 2003 server.  In a short amount of time, about thirty pcs showed up in the admin console.  The next day, around 4pm, I had 139pcs.  I'll check tomorrow for more but is this normal or should these pcs be showing up faster.
I have the GPO set on our computers OU and have run gpupdate /force several times.
- These are cloned PCs so I'm not sure if the SID was reset so I'll check that tomorrow and let you know.
- My second question is after the install, and everything seemed to go smoothly,  should I have granted the Network Service Account full control of the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework on the wsus server.  I've read where that could prevent computers from showing up in the console.  Am I just being impatient or does it look like I have a problem.  Anyway, your input on this is greatly appreciated.

I like to restart the PCs to make sure that everything has updated cleanly from the GPO, etc.
You can run on the client machine "wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow" to force the windows update to kick off (give it 30mins or so, it can take some time).
Also check the windowsupdate.log file in C:\windows\.

I'm still not seeing all of the machines.  I have 158 in approximately a week and to me more should show up.  We have about 800 units in this building.  I'll try your recommendation on a few machines and see what happens.  Thanks for the time.

Hi,
Another thought, if the original cloned image was already using WSUS, it stores an ID in the registry.
I like to run the following batch file just before taking the image but you could try running it on any that are still not working:
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 /u jscript.dll
regsvr32 /u msxml3.dll
regsvr32 /u atl.dll
regsvr32 /u wuapi.dll
regsvr32 /u wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /u wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /u wucltui.dll
regsvr32 /u wups.dll
regsvr32 /u wuweb.dll
rmdir /S c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution
del c:\windows\windowsupdate.log
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll
net start wuauserv
wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow
