Windows updates

I have a customer that needs the administrator to be able to log on to a windows machine managed by Windows Update Group policy and change how windows updates a computer.  

I figured out how to exclude windows machines, but I can not get the Administrator account excluded.  

Policy number 5 will enable the local administrator the ability to change how windows updates interacts with the desktop, but the stake holders do not necessarily want the local user to change.  Log in in as the administrator is preferred.   the local user is an admin on the station.

Thanks,

Rick

I may not understand what you are saying but you do not want local users who logon to be able to run Windows updates, right? Yet you say local users are admin users--if that is the case you will then have to create a group to add the users to and then add that group to the Group policy and exclude them from that right
