This means that the client is not getting the WSUS GPO applied to it

NOT  A VIRUS

Sure did http:#a38844628  it doesnt exist <<<which you didnt respond to.

launching the web to  http://servername:8530/forceupdate is not the correct way to troubleshoot WSUS. From what we have so far, you need to troubleshoot why the client isnt picking up the Group policy.
