Need to disable Automatic updates on some Windows 7 clients (SBS 2008 WSUS)

I have two clients on an SBS 2008 network that cannot have an auto-reboot after updates are installed without breaking their proprietary software.  I need to know how to isolate these two pc's from the WSUS GP allowing them to skip the updates.  These two PC's do not use the internet, only their proprietary software.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can try to disable the "Windows Update" or "Automatic Updates" service, depending on which version of Windows those two clients run:

Start -> Run -> services.msc -> "Automatic Updates"/"Windows Update" -> Right-Click -> Properties -> select "Disabled" -> OK


The other option is to use the "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installation." inthe WSUS GPO under:

Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update

A third option would to to deny these two computer read & apply permissions for the GPO under security options.

Another option if possible in your instance would be to create a new OU and then move these computers to it. From there you could either block inheritance of your WSUS GPO or create new GPO with proper settings and apply it to that OU.

Go to the WSUS console, move the two computers from the current group to the Excluded Computers Group
