Hi experts!

I am new to Active Directory. I have setup a domain and have 17 client compuers logging into the domain.

However, I will to know how to install software into the computers whenever they log in. For example, right now I would like to upgrade all computers to Internet Explorer 7 when they log into the network. Is this possible? How do I accomplish this?

THanks a lot!

You might want to look at utilizing the Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) software package.

Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) enables information technology administrators to deploy the latest Microsoft product updates to computers running the Windows operating system. By using WSUS, administrators can fully manage the distribution of updates that are released through Microsoft Update to computers in their network.

After quick research, I did discover that older IE7 releases had an interactive WGA check embedded in it. I found on the Microsoft site a new release that no longer has the WGA check embedded in it, thus might be able to be pushed to your client workstations.

Hi MW

I am having problems with the WSUS on my SBS Server. Apparently it was not correctly installed or some components are missing. Is there a way to remove WSUS and reinstall it from scratch?

Thanks

I found this EE article about using the Internet Explorer Administration Kit for deploying:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/2000/Q_21198773.html

If WSUS isn't out of the picture, I also found this Microsoft Support article:
