We have about 300 users that are all under the "domain users" group. This is a very locked down group, they cant install anything. One problem is however, we have all the computers set to do windows updates at night.  They never do, if we log in as admin and let it sit all night, then it will update fine.

So basically how can i add permission so that these restricted users, can auto update and install at night?

thx!

The closest thing I can think of at the moment would be to enable the 'Always install with elevated privileges' domain GPO.  The only GPO's I recall specifically for Windows updates were to block updates, not to enable installation of updates.

If you download and installl the following product from Microsoft.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a7aa96e4-6e41-4f54-972c-ae66a4e4bf6c&DisplayLang=en

This allows you to have a server which will download and distribute updates to the machines on your network.

you'll need to configure about four options under the computer settings for a group policy object holding the computer accounts in Active directory.

Also there should be documentation for this product to talk you through Syncronysing and setting it all up.
