Why not rely on the automatic update? 

When making the NTConfig.pol:

In                  Configure automatic updating
choose:            4 - Auto download and schedule the install

You can be kind to users and have a question asked before the probable reboot.

Choose: No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations

This is what we are using and it works without users having any kind of privileges.
