In our test environment, we approve updates in WSUS and all machine in the test OU are set to automatically download and notify to install these updates. The scheduled install time is Saturday night, but throughout the week I keep seeing an 'updates are available' full screen notification on every test machine I sign in to. I don't want to see these, because the installs are scheduled for Saturday and I don't want to accidentally click install during business hours.

Here's an example of the notification I'm talking about: Here's an example of the notification I'm talking about

I already set the group policy to disable non-admins from seeing these on their personal computers. But non-admins won't log in to our servers, so that doesn't resolve anything here.

Thank you!
