"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What have you tried, or can you elaborate.  We use WSUS and have the patching schedule in there, we have an overnight window when all our offices are closed and do it during this window.

I think you would be better, posting new questions, in specific zones....

e.g. How I I clean up Active Directory and Group Policies ?

and post to Active Directory, Windows 2008, Windows 2012 etc

and do that for all your topics you need help with.

You will get better focused help from Experts that monitor these zones.
