Why is this key resetting to the default?

At this moment I'm testing SUS with a Windows 2000 server (no AD) and a Windows 2000 client. I've changed the clients; registry settings. But when checking for updates, one key is reset to the original setting (Microsoft). I cannot find the cause for this error.
It sounds like there are local computer policies in play here (or it could be a domain policy -- doesn't have to be AD). You'll want to check the local policies on the computers by opening GPEdit.msc on a computer, and navigating to the AutoUpdate Client settings.
