Hi,

We have a server 2003 with all patches and updates installed and a Windows 7 SP1 workstation on our domain.

I need to add group policy settings allowing this user to update applications and install programs on his workstation.  

Thank you for your assistance.

If you dont want to add users to the Local Admins group, you can use Privilege Authority(It's Free also)

We use it to allow users to update things like Java and Adobe
