Auto Install Updates through GPO

I am trying to find a way to have Java and Adobe updates automatically install on PC's that don't have admin rights. Is it possible to set up a GPO to do this? Will it work automatically when new updates come out or will it only push out the package the one package that is specified in the policy? If it is possible, how would that be set up?
If it isn't possible, is there some other way to accomplish this?

If you are using WSUS in your environment, you can use free extension to it Local Update Publisher and you can manage that software over WSUS, deploying software like updates

I am trying to get LUP running and I stuck with this error.
ErrorWhen I go into the "UpdateServicesPackages" it is empty. Am I missing a step?
I do have the cert installed that was made from the LUP.

Hi.
The LUP people have a help wiki. Did you do all the steps from http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/localupdatepubl/index.php?title=Main_Page

Yes, that's what I've been using. Everything works until I try to create an update package and then I get that error.

So where did you install that certificate? Install it at the server to trusted root CA and to trusted publishers. Maybe the manual missed "trusted publishers"?
