I've got a bit of an odd problem for which I haven't quite found the answer to yet.
We've got a server running Server 2008 R2 64-bit with WSUS and group policy objects configured to manage Windows Updates to other servers, workstations, etc. When I log onto a workstation (Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit, pretty generic) as a domain user, I see the windows update icon in the lower-right taskbar. The fun arises, however, when I log onto this same workstation as a domain admin. This icon doesn't show anymore. In fact, the only way to install the updates manually (instead of going with the GP/WSUS schedule) is to go to the Windows Updates website.
I wasn't sure if this was something normal or if there's a particular setting I need to change, but can't seem to find.
