Sometimes, you don’t want the end-users or non-administrator users to be notified there are windows updates that need to be applied. In this post, I will show you how to create a GPO that prevent a non-administrator user to be notified if there are any windows updates.
- Log in to the Active Directory where the RDS server refers to.
- Open “Group Policy Management” or you can easily run the command “gpmc.msc”.
- Create or Edit a GPO and then browse to Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update. Change the value of the setting “Allow non-administrators to receive update notifications” to disabled.
This only support at least Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 or At least Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 through Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2 with most current service pack
