Is it possible to deploye IE8 via GPO or other software distribution software to non-local administrator workstations? All of our users are configured as power users and I need to deploy IE8 silently so I don't have to visit each and every workstation. However, I read this on Technet today, "Prevent users from running as local administrators on their computers. Users who are not local administrators are not offered the updates and are normally restricted from manually installing Internet Explorer 8 (or any other application)." Is there a way around this? There has to be a way to install IE to non-local administrators remotely.

I actually found the answer to this question. It is possible via the IEAK for IE8.
