Microsoft WSUS Server/ Group Policy

We are having a hard time configuring Group Policy to allow NON Administrator users to receive Windows updates.  

We have allowed non-administrators to receive update notifications and have selected Auto download and schedule the install.  

Administrator users received the notification but never the non-administrator users.

In Group Policy Object Editor, expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, and then click Windows Update.

There is an option for Allow "Non-administrators to Receive Update Notifications" make sure that is enabled
You don't write how you configured it. If we change that setting, we need to restart the windows update service at the client side or it won't change it's behavior.
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Ensure that policy is applied to computer OU else it will not work.You also need to reboot the client computer for setting to take effect if the policy is applied correctly.see this for more details:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd939933(WS.10).aspx

Run rsop.msc and check that policy is applied correctly on client computer.
