Is it possible to apply updates centrally from the server for our PCs?
Otherwise, because most are restricted as power users, is it really necessary
to log in to each PC as an administrator to apply updates?

Can we configure Windows Update so patches can get installed automatically
without users needing administrator privileges on the system?
