Hi,

I have windows 2008 DC and users having mixture of windows xp, windows 7 client machines added to domain.

Now user are not allowed to install any updates for any software's like adobe acrobat, skype etc.

How I can provide this access to users. I want them to allow to install only updates and they should not do new application installations. Any way we can do this using Group policy.

Thanks
Pradeep

Hi Sedwick,

This is for windows update right? or it will include other softwares like skype, acrobat and all?

or any option is there where we can specify only skype and acrobat?

thanks

this is just for windows update, if u want updates just for skype and acrobat it can be done but not via GPO.
u can run scheduler which checks for updates and install on all user domains if required.
other than that your hands are tied.
