How to push out adobe updates to users with System Center Essentials

I have users wanting admin passwords so they can install updates, obviously not an option... but would like to somehow either push out updates to them with SCE, or somehow allow them to do it themselves without giving them full blown admin rights on their machines.  (basically we're trying to stop them from corroding their systems with tons of unnecesary apps, games, etc. so i don't want to give them rights to install any programs)  Currently everyone except for our VP's and our tech team are in the "power users" group on their local machine(s).  FYI we're in a windows xp environment almost 100% along with server 03.

That does help a bit, i'm very new to SCE though and am not sure really how to push out any updates, so if you could give me a more step by step set of instructions that would help alot.
