Have created a Group Policy to push out Microsoft Forefront to certain users contained within an Active Directory Organization Unit (OU). However, Forefront never gets installed on these user's computers.

We are using Group Policy and Active Directory to assign this policy which will install Forefront on the computers in this particular Organization Unit via Windows Software Update Services.

I have run gpupdate/force on these computers and have logged off, had them log back in, and have restarted the computer, but Forefront never gets installed.

I have also made sure that these computers don't have Microsoft Security Essentials installed and have disabled the Windows Defender service.

Furthermore, when users click on Windows Updates, the Windows updates are being pulled directly from the Microsoft website and aren't being pulled from the Windows Server Update Services server.

What can I do to fix this so that Forefront will install on these computers via Group Policy?
