We are having issues with Flash Player and Java auto update pop ups. Our network consists of Vista Enterprise workstations. All our staff user accounts are members of USERS local group, so they restricted from installing applications.
Is there a way to automate the Flash Player and Java auto update? Every time it pops up I have to go and manually input my username and password so it can install, it requires administrative privileges. Maybe there is an GP or registry setting which I am not aware of?

We are deploying/updating those java jre and flash (2 different versions, one for IE, one for other browsers) via GPOs (MSI-package-deployment). You can easily modify both the msi package for jre and that for flash so that autoupdates are disabled. Use orca (http://www.brentnorris.net/blog/archives/319) to do it. The values you have to change are in the section "property" of the msi. What values in particluar can be found at appdeploy.com package knowledge base.
