Unable to load windows updates with Windows 7

Our network domain users who have Windows 7 are unable to load Windows Updates when they click on them in the lower right area of the system tray with the Windows update icon. When they click on it it does nothing, the only way for them to load updates is doing the shutdown and install updates button. But Windows XP users have no issues they can click on the Windows update shield in the system tray, we are running a 2003 Domain. Is there something in Group Policy that might be blocking this?

Maybe you have policy that Windows updates can check only local admin?

Well I am a domain admin and I can install them and the Windows XP users can also install them. Why would Windows 7 users be different than the XP users? They should have the same rights.

When looking through all the users Group Policy settings being applied to them I didn't see anything blocking it. Then thought that maybe it might be a control panel applet.
