Can the Domain Admin or Local Admin override the WSUS GPO that restricts users from manually updating their machine from the Windows Update site? We need to have our Help Desk staff either remote in or visit customer PCs and invoke a manual update from the web. We DO NOT want our customers to do this!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

My suggestion is to create registry key to be pushed out gpo that adds *://update.microsoft.com/* into the “untrusted sites”. Easy, simple.
