Hello and thank you in advance for any feedback!!

I'm the system administrator for a small business (about 50 workstations and 3 servers) I just came into this position a few month ago. The problem I have is whoever setup the network before was an idiot. Everyone is logged into their systems as "Administrators", no one is installing updates, most if not all people have programs installed that shouldn't be (games etc).

I'm wondering if there is software out there that can help me not only lock my network down but also push out updates and such to the workstations, rather then me go to each computer myself.

I'm a fairly new system administrator so any feedback is appreciated!

Workstations are all running Win XP Pro
Servers are all running Windows Server 2003, one has Microsoft Exchange Server loaded

Just use the server, change user rights in the Active Directory, edit your group policy, and setup a little bit more security.
