I have about 100 machines i have to walkaround to and install hotfixes for. How do i do this as the user currentley logged in? how do i give that user the rights needed to install the hofixes? then how do i remove them once im done installing the hotfixes? I just dont want to have to logg them out, then log on, install the hotfixes, then log them back on!

Wy walk around?

If the users are local admins they can install the patch them selves...OR
you can remotely install the update using an loginscript (in case of a domain).
