I have a domain of about 50 computers. It's always been a pain keeping up to date with Java and Adobe Reader. We have a mix environment of xp, vista, and 7. Our main server is SBS 2011.

Is there a way to distribute and manage these two software's from our server? There has to be an easier way than physically going to each computer.

You may want to look at http://sourceforge.net/projects/localupdatepubl/ and publish your own software via WSUS.

Another method is to publish the MSI via group olicy, but you have very little control of the deployment process, http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/group-policy-deploy-applications.html.

If you're not afraid ;-) of Linux see http://www.opsi.org
