Automatic Updates for application

submissiontechnology used Ask the Experts™
Hi all, I have built a app using Visual Studio VB 2010 - I need a reliable solution to checking for new distributions that I would publish via a URL .  

At present, I'm using the click once method but it doesnt seem to working as desired. The software I've developed runs as a notofication icon in the system tray and starts automatically on windows logon.

If the user were to click the shortcut from the start menu, the click once dialog appears and checks for updates - but is there a way I suppose to trigger this behaviour whilst the application is running as some workstations in the office are not restarted / logged off.

Your comments are appreciated,
