IE-Windows updates in Domain Environment

It's a doamin environment, and one of the computer has not updated at the times of updates and IE has some issues.
We have policies in the domain, so I cant go to the c panel or IE and do the updates. What I can go to do the update for IE or windows.
                                                               Even if I login as the admin, I cant do the updates manually, as firewall wont let me do this.

That's what I am trying to do....
1. logging as the user
2. Then runas admin through the cmd prompt.
3. Start tash manager
4. Run C:\program files\internet explorer
5. then click on the iexplorer
and then do the updates. But even that way i am getting error.

What other way I can do the updates?

Need Window Update Server (WSUS) to do updates (most admins disable individual client updates in group policy to keep network from being congested), one download to multiple domain clients.  A bit tricky to set up if using Small Business Server.

Best think to do is wait for next update window.  Check the application logs to see why the update failed.  Are the updates being pushed through SMS or SCCM from the SysAdmin?

If you want to manually run updates but you present policy prevents you from doing so then the best thing may be to move the computer to an OU that has a GPO removing restrictions on updates.
Overall though I'd agree with shjacks55, on a domain network, the best way for distributing updates is to install WSUS.
We have a OU of computers & servers to which all updates are automatic approved and then we manually approve the updates to the rest of the network if we don't come across any issues.

BTW there is a known issue with windows 7 sp1:http://www.ditii.com/2011/03/08/windows-7-sp1-blue-screens-of-death-error-c000009a-is-due-to-language-packs-microsoft/
best not to approve that one for the time being.
