If you mean windows updates, then I would suggest using a remote desktop connection such as the built in windows remote software. The computers will have to be a form of "Professional Edition" of either Vista or XP. Then just enable remote connections to that pc, and go from there.


Right click "My Computer" and select properties
Click on the Remote Tab
Click to allow remote connections and select users that will have access (needs to have a password for the user account)
Write down the Computer name and then go to your PC
Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>Remote Desktop Connection
Type in other computers name and hit connect
Perform updates from there
NOTE: Only one user can be logged in at one time. If someone else is using it, it will kick them out of the system until the decide to re-login, but if they do that while you are in there, it will log you off the remote connection


Right click MY COMPUTER and select properties
Select "Advanced System Settings"
Select Remote Tab and allow connections
<The rest of the steps are the same as above>
