No firewall, with the exception of the one loaded with WinXP. The error that
comes up states that it does not recognize any of the updates as having a
valid Microsoft signature, and that an admin must install the updates. From
there, they all fail loading.

Can you give us a little bit more specific info? What error messages are
you getting? Are you running a firewall? If so, try disabling the
firewall...I know SCS in particular has had issues with Windows Update.

will fail. I've done some research that suggested a necessary service may
not have started, but this is not the case. When looking at the user
account, they are designated as Administrator. However, Windows Update
says it won't install the updates unless it's accomplished by an
administrator. Any suggestions?
