Error 0x80092026 during Windows Updates

This error came up when we were trying to send out an update package to our Windows XP machines.  Microsoft has a couple of pages that describe what you can troubleshoot to fix this issue:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555374
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=822798

None of the suggestions worked for us.  Since our environment is locked-down via draconian Group Policy Objects, I thought that would be a logical place to continue troubleshooting.  After slumming around a bit, I discovered that Computer Configuration | Policies | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Public Key Policies/Certificate Path Validation Settings/Trusted Publishers/Trusted Publishers can be managed by: was set to All administrators only.  This has to be set to All administrators and users for Windows Update (SCCM, SMS) to work properly.

Don’t say I never helped you out…
