Hi,

The company main server is running Windows 2000, while the company's
computers are running Windows 98 and Windows XP.

Can anyone tell me how can I deploy the Windows Updates from the main server
to the computers at the entire company without manually does the Windows
Update on each computer individually?

Thanks.
