I manage the public computers in our library and I would like for the Apple software update to just happen quietly according to a schedule like Windows updates or .dat files. Our public computers are 'frozen' with DeepFreeze during the day plus our user's logon is not an administrator so the update doesn't happen.

Does anyone know if that could be done?

    I'm not sure how much help this is going to be (I'm certain it doesn't answer your question fully), but just in case ...

    In XP, scheduling of automatic Apple Software Update checks is handled using Scheduled tasks in Windows. Go "Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks" to see the AppleSoftwareUpdate scheduled task. Doubleclick the task to make settings changes.

    Not precisely sure how this is handled on Vista. (Don't have a Vista box to hand to check on this.)
