Hi Experts,

My client currently has Skype Ver.5,5 installed on thier laptops, it's now prompting users for  upgrade, or that an update is available, but because they don't have local admin rights they not allowed/unable to install the update, how can we centrally manage the skype updates for these users without visiting each machine to manually update them, what's the best approach for this, albeit GPO/Script to get this done, we talking 40 users running Windows 7 with Windows 2008 DC
