Automatic updates

Is there any way that the automatic updates get installed when a user with no privileges is logged in. Now, i need to go over every PC and log in as an administrator in order to see that there are some updates ready to install. I would like that the updates could install while a normal user is logged in. Is it possible?

I too have this problem and the best soloution I can find is a third party piece of software from 
I have used the demo version and it is superior to SUS as you can push the updates when you want.  Also does office, sql and exchange etc.

Use Software Update Server from Microsoft.  Especially if you have a domain with Active Directory, you can deploy all the critical Windows updates to client computers by configuring a Group Policy and applying it to OUs with computers.  See for more information.  (BTW - SUS is free).  And even if you don't have a domain, you can configure registry settings and have it update things that way.

I know about SUS, but will it solve my problem? I think that i still will have to log in as an administrator to get updates installed, won't i?
Please i need confirmation on this point.

To answer your question, no, you don't need to be logged in as an Admin - the updates are pulled from SUS server and based on defined policies (or registry settings) and installed on the client.
