    I require to know how to patch all the pc's on a network
    other than visiting each machinr & logging on as the
    administrator. We have a mixture of win2k & xp systems
    that need the blaster patch. i have downloaded the patches
    & written a batch file, but when i go to a user pc(power
    user) it says i do not have enough privages i.e. i require
    adminitrator privages to install the patch. How can i get
    around this. 50 systems, including 5 remote workers.

  3. Please look over this thoroughly. As i don't know what you did so far, this
    will probably do it for you!

    Push them out using a product like Shavlik's HFNetChk, or use the
    RUNAS method of running the install as a local admin. Any number of
    ways will work.

    I have looked through the information & understand about
    the threat, however i am looking for a way of updating all
    the pc's on the corporate network without actually having
    to go & visit each & every pc & run the update as the
    local administrator. If there is no other way, then this
    is what i shall do, however i can not imagine this is how
    very big companies run these type of updates/patches.
    I have looked @ the patch management page, but in all
    honesty do not understand how it works at present. I was
    going to install the update by sending out a link to batch
    file which would like to the update & run the applicaion
    over the network, however the requires the end user is
    running with administrator privaleges which of course they
    are not.
