We are a state agency and we will be proving a large number of PCs (Windows XP Professional) to entities that we do business with. These entities are almost exclusively based in private homes and the PCs will not be connected to our network. I want to configure Windows Update to run automatically and not require any user interaction other than to have them re-boot once the updates have been installed. I have worked with Windows Updates on Windows XP on our network and found that Automatic Updates requires user interaction, some times a number of steps are required, that is why I moved to WSUS on our network. Since these PCs will not be part of our network that will not be an option. These PCs will be connected via DSL and the users are not at all savvy. Does anyone know of a way to configure Automatic Updates in this type of environment so that it is completely automated? We would like to avoid purchasing 3rd party software if possible.
