HI

Does any one know how to allow only updates approved by WSUS server to the Windows XP clients. I don't want anyone to install unapproved updates via Microsoft Update or Windows Update site. but they should have access to those sites.

Your options are to turn off windows update via GPO in which case they will not be able to actually get to any updates from the microsoft site, or not turn it off in which case they will be able to get and install any updates at the microsoft site.  WSUS does not and cannot exert any control over the Windows update site.  WSUS only controls what updates you want to push to the client.  That push can happen weather you turn off windows update via GPO or not.
