    Why rely on the users to install the patches? I set mine up to auto install and reboot the system (I set mine to go at 3 AM). Course, since it's a hospital environment, there are some machines that have to be done manually.

    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.
