Our network is comprised of a Windows SBS 2008 Server, Windows 2003 Server and a Windows 2008 Standard Server. For several months now we have been using Terminal Services to run a third party accounting application on the 2008 standard server, Terminal Services is running fine but I recently noticed the server's windows update icon at the bottom right of the TS client prompting updates are ready to install.

How would I hide this on the TS client?
Thanks.

You can try to create a GPO and enable this option : User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components> Windows Update > Remove access to use all Windows Update features.

Thanks Sim50. I was thinking about this but would this affect all the workstations on the network? They like to have their updates downloaded and they install them when they have time.

You are right, it will effect them on their desktop as well but you can set it up as loopback group policy.
