Looking for good patch, update (adobe, java, microsoft) deployment software that runs on Vista,

I'm looking for a program that is inexpensive, will push out adobe, java and some Microsoft updates?

The updates will be applied to Vista computers and Server 2003 servers.

Thank you,

How "inexpensive" of a tool are you looking for? For standard Microsoft updates, you can of course use WSUS which is free.  For other software deployments and updates, you can use 3rd party applications such as Symantec's Altiris (which isn't cheap), but I always seem to have issues with it.. so I usually end up reverting to more basic methods such as PsExec, which is a free remote command-line based tool that you can use to deploy different software/patches (such as Java, Reader and Flash) - but it requires some knowledge on the proper commands/switches to deploy it silently.

As with anything, there are pros and cons with using it, so it's up to you to figure out what works best for you.

I've decided to go with GFILanGuard, its free for 30 days and then free for 5 IPs after that and for now it will do what I need.

Thanks for all the comments.
