Do you not have a WSUS server to manage your updates and distribution? Or even SCCM for management & distribution?

Hi,

the easiest way is to create an executable package using IEAK and then deploying it through "Startup Script" for example.

You will find every information about IEAK here : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc817437.aspx

Create a new Computer Group inside of ALL Computers and then when u Authorise the IE8 package ONLY authorise it against that one Group. Now just ADD computers into the group. Jobs a good un :D

I really recommend you to create an IEAK package because you will then be able to personalize the installation (define defaut search engine; disable accelerators; personalize anto popup module etc...)
