Manual Installation of MS security patches and Antivirus updates without Administrator Rights
Posted on 2006-11-08
Hi, This is the my first time posting here so please bear with me if I made any mistakes.
My company have quite a lot of users using standalone laptop at remote sites. They will use dial-up to connect back to our mail servers to download or send their mails only.
Our recent management directives was that all these laptops must be patch with the lastest MS security patches and Symantec Antivirus Coporate edition virus defintation. The decision was to create a CD and dispatch them out to all these remote location and let the user manually install the patches theirselves.
The problem is that ALL the remote users are accessing the PC using a local restricted accounts. They only have rights up to "User" Level. Some are even using "Guest" account to login (locally).
They are not allowed to have any administrator accounts or rights under any circumstances. They also do not have any access to the internet.
How can I automate this installation for them without giving them the administrator account? Or is there a way to create an account that allow the user to install the patches but not any other programs like games?
Any help would be appreciated on this.
