Hi all!

Hope you can help, we have a small network of 25 Windows XP SP2 PC's and 1 Windows 2003 Server. I have to manually go to each PC and go into Windows Update to get the latest updates which takes ages, is there anyway I can do something on the server so it automatically updates the PC's from the server at certain points of the day/week etc? Any advice would be great!

Thank you!

Chris

are you on a domain? if so check out WSUS (search it on microsoft)...it's a server that will allow you do download all the updates to your server...then have the PC's get their updates from the server instead of MS...you can control when they update and how they update..you can approve the updates you want and decline the ones you don't...it also gets the office updates etc...

WSUS recommended. Go to Microsoft website and search for it on Downloads. It is free to download and easy to setup.
