I have computers running in XP Pro SP3. Im running an application which often conflicts with windows updates; therefore, I need to turn off automatic update. I disabled and stopped the service but the service changes to automatic by itself. I have asked the network administrator to setup a group policy to disable AU and it didn't work. I then tried to change the registery by following the steps on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/892894/en-us but the AU still comes back.

I log in to a domain with local administrator privilage, and this happens right after I updated from SP2 to SP3. Virus and spyware is not a concern as these computers dont have access to websites other than the ones that requires the application to run on. Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance.

If you are logging into a a computer that is part of the domain, all security policies are disabled as set forth by Active Directory.

Yes, but I am not talking about local security policy. Im talking about services.msc which I believe will not be disabled unless it's over-written by the domain group policy.

Just double checking, did you also turn them off in the Windows Security Center?

Well then I would re-enable the service in services and then change to setting in Windows Security Center. I did not have to do anything other than stopping them there
