Run windows updates as a non administrator

By dellforrester ·
Hi,

I have a laptop with Windows XP SP3.
I would like the laptop to be able to run windows updates, but without administrative rights.

I have read this article
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/328010

which should explain how to do it, but when I have set the group policy as administrator and reboot and log in as a non-administrator the windows updates do not occur.
Is it possible or am I doing something wrong???

Windows XP isn't on the list so you need to look under the XP Section which doesn't appear to have anything listed.
