Well SUS will only install windows patches. It won't install office patches or patches from other vendors. Sometime next year, Microsoft is coming out with a replacement to SUS called WUS. This is suppossed to include office patches and a way to see which patches have been applied to which machines.
Are you getting any kind of error messages or anything showing up in your logs that would give us a clue as to why the clients are not getting the updates?
we use update expert from st. Bernard www.stbernard.com.  It will install any MS patch including office patches remotely.  As far as patches from other vendors you could set up a ghost server and use what they call an AI package and then send that package out to all the clients you want.  But the ghost setup will not work unless all of your machines are exactly alike, it same OS, vendor, setup etc.

Is there anybody cleaning up this kind of stuff? LeeTutor?
