Hiding items under PC Settings in windows 8 using Group policy

Hi
All my clients run windows 8.  I need to control some of the windows 8 features where users can change their login picture and are able to personalize the 'lock screen'.
Here is I want under PC settings to be shown to users:
- Notifications
-Search
- General
-Windows update
I have tried already in group policy, user config, admin templ, control panel by disabling control panel altogether but this disables users from getting updates as well, so now I am choosing 'show only specified control panel items' it works for control panel items but how can I disable items when users go to charm bar, click on settings, then click on 'Change PC Settings'.   Need help

If you are using WSUS(Which you should be) then this will not have any effect on them getting updates. The PC's will continue to get updates from WSUS, users just will not be able to manually go to Microsoft.com to install updates themselves.
