In this scenario, the original changes will be committed in addition to the new changes. The constraints imposed by the Enhanced Write Filter were too much to work around.

Warning Even if you do not select the Configuration Manager options to commit the changes, the changes might be committed if another software installation or change is made that commits changes.
The exception is for configuration baselines with configuration items that use automatic remediation. I rebooted a few times and it stopped applying the policy. There should be a setting for each tab so you could try disabling all of the tabs they could still open Internet Options but there would not be anything they can see change. Will it re-attempt the download? This means they are able to target just the machines that do not have problems with the update. After 15 minutes the client restarts and is back in operational mode, but without having applied the updates. I've tried applying the 'Always wait for the network at computer startup and user logon' policy but that did not work.
My workaround was to just set the group policy locally on the thin client and include it in the image that I deployed out to the rest of them. This was quite a dilemma, because no one is able to test a new patch against all possible applications out in field. Solution has been tested on 30 Thin Clients so far with a good result. The Automatic Updates system handles all of this functionality and has done so, without failure, for over ten years now. Note When you select the applicable platforms for software deployments and configuration items, these display the Windows Embedded families rather than specific versions. It's completely random with what works and when. Edited October 13, 2018 by glnz.
The gpresult shows that the correct policy is being applied and that it's the only policy being applied but it's not reflected on screen. Somewhere I read that does not work on W7. Of course, there are drawbacks if the infrastructure is not in place yet, because there are setup and maintenance costs for the required back-end. I can't apply the policy directly to the thin clients because we have a local administrator account on each device that needs access to the restricted items, hence why I am applying the restrictions to the specific user. In the case where we lose power during a download, we need to ensure the resumed update is not corrupted. The Automatic Updates system handles all of this functionality and has done so, without failure, for over ten years now. It looks like the only warnings I get is a fast link and the blocked inheritance.
As this thread has been quiet for a while, we assume that the issue has been resolved. With kind regards, Hayo Veenstra Hi Tom, This seems to be a bug in the product my guess. Every device is logged into using the same domain user account. The problem is that the Group Policy intermittently applies, and sometimes applies incompletely. I've applied Group Policy to that particular account to restrict access to unnecessary items i.
Any way, follow that advice - and now you're good until October 2023. In the case where we lose power during a download, we need to ensure the resumed update is not corrupted. This behaviour is only with the 'windows updates'. You could have a look at the accompanying documentation rtf file to see if there are subsystems involved that can be found in your custom Standard image. Just this month, there were two meltdowns from updates to Win 10. The user is a standard domain user account.
With kind regards, Hayo Veenstra I am also working on this as well specifically Dell Wyse devices. The remediation is applied again at the next evaluation cycle, but only to the overlay, which is cleared at restart. I still have access to the features I disabled. I have several computers with W7 in which I finish receiving updates on January 14, 2020. Thanks again for your efforts in helping me with this issue. As for disallowing the end user to mess something up. Custom Patches Even in version 3.
I've even tried re-imaging the thin client. I came into a network that was already established so to make sure that wasn't the issue I blocked inheritance to ensure only my policy was being enforced to the test computer. I use the write filter handling under the 'user experience' tab of the deployment. This behaviour is only with the 'windows updates'. So, this feature just won't work for me. I'm primarily concerned with thin clients but I've also tried it on a couple laptops and a desktop computer.
