For Windows patches and hotfixes I'd use Windowsupdate - then they will
be downloaded and installed automatically.
If you wan't to update some other programs (like Adobe, Firefox,
Thunderbird etc.), you can use WPKG - http://wpkg.org (you can use it
for Windows updates/hotfixes, too).
With that tool you can "push" updates, patches, install, uninstall and
upgrade software, set printers, execute scripts (with Administrator or
SYSTEM privileges; don't confuse with netlogon scripts, which are
executed with user permissions), change permissions etc. to/on single
hosts or to a group of hosts.
