    We have a SUS server in place and it is distributing updates just fine.
      My question has to do with the installation of these updates.

    Most of my users are local admins (I know I do not need the lecture on
    how bad that is). To top it off while the updates get downloaded to
    their computers, they are not responding to the prompts to install the
    updates. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the updates
    installed. Removing the local admin rights is not an option right now.
