1) The clients are all being updated from WSUS when users are logged on, naturally causing many a groan. The computers do not get kept on overnight, so update when they are being used !

2) Also, I know this is another question but it relates to windows updates, where in group policy windows 2008 r2, can I remove clients being told updates have  been installed and when to restart the computer, now or later. I'd like this to be prevented from displaying.
