I too use AutoIt, but just at the time of the initial build of the OS and
apps.  For installing updates I use Lanovation's Prism Pack, which allows
me to install software via login scripts as a non administrator user.
Works great for us to push updates out to a bunch of computer labs.  My
only beef with it is that it doesn't support NTFS ACLs, so it can be a pain
if some app needs a different permission set than it would normally get.
