Use Microsoft Software Update Services (as above) and set a Group Policy to force installation of critical updates on all the client PCs.

The GPO settings are described in the white paper that you can download with the product.
As for viruses, you should use a console-managed Anti virus, such as McCafee's EPO or Symantec's Service Center
