    On user's desktops we do not give them adm rights, just
    regular user rights--by doing this we cannot get the
    windows updates to run on there desktops with loggin in
    as adm on the box--any one have a solution to this
    problem please email me.. Thank you debby

    Not too sure if it will work due to the fact I cannot
    reproduce your problem.
    Try editing the following registry key on a test machine
    first.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersi
    on\WindowsUpdate

    Right click on the key and choose permissions. Make sure
    your users group has full control.
    Then click on the Advanced button and then highlight your
    suer group which you want to use Windows update. Then
    click the checkbox Replace permission entries on all
    child objects....
    Then click on apply/ok on all property boxes.
    Restart the machine and then test.
