I need to be bale to allow users to install software on there local PC without making them local admins or admins.
The software that they need to install are simple, like Java, Flash, iTune Updates or even update for 3 party software like adobe ect... Can I do this via a GPO?
If so can someone please explain to me how.
I don't want to go the add them to the local admin group of there PC, I like to be able to deploy it via GPO so that I can if need me remove the policy if need me and not have to sit at every workstation and remove them from the admin local group.

Thanks...

Depending on the size of the organization you may want to implement SMS/SCOM.

Here is a link to recommended ways to do what you want:

I just want to use GPO, its a small network.
Can it be done without deployment, as in a GPO setting?

Group Policy Software Installation is very cool and it allows you to deploy software to your users “on the cheap.” It’s not “super robust” since it cannot deploy software while users are already logged in, but it does the job and can be a real lifesaver if you’re looking for cheap in the box to do the job.

Yes I read that exactly sentence from the link you send me. The issue is software that needs to be updated often, like flash, java, iTunes ect...
I'm looking for a way to allow the user to stay on top of the many almost daily updates.
While I agree with your suggestion, I don't think it will work for me needs.
