Windows 7 computers will run windows updates while connected to a Windows 2003 Domain

We have a pretty smal network.  We run a Windows 2003 Server SP2.   We recently replaced 3  XP computers on our network with Windows 7 Professional. Once these computers joined the domain,  the Windows update feature is disabled.  The Windows update has line that reads You receive updates: Managed by system administrator.  I do not have Group Policies in my domain.  We have never configured any at all in our small domain.  

At the present,  the only way to get updates is to join a workgroup and then I can get updates.  I am at a loss as what to do.  I can't find anything on our server restricting access.

This means you either have the Windows Update settings configured through the LGPO or GPO.
