We have a managed Windows 7 environment where SCCM controls the patches that can be applied to the workstations. We have set a policy for Windows Update to
'Configure Automatic Updates' - Disabled.
This has been put in place to prevent users or engineers going to pull down new updates from Microsoft updates thus avoiding machines at different patch levels.
I want however to allow users to install printer drivers for their local printers as necessary. Is there a way in which I can achieve this? I would really prefer to be allow users to take drivers from windows update but not patches. This would allow laptop users to take drivers for their home printers.
