Batch file Help - automation

Been looking around for hours. I have my own computer repair shop in a small town/city with about 10 competitors. I always drop my email - remote support - online scheduling site on the desktop. Well coming into virus season soon . Winter and my old man who is 80 wants to help, keep his mind going. So I got Techwaru for him to make it as automated as possible. Its getting to the point where I may need to hire but I'm hanging on the edge hoping my dad can give me a hand and help him have something to live for. Ok so I want to automate dropping my icons on desktop, also bring up IE manage add-ons window, and automatically run widows auto update. I have no experience in batch files but know they can do a great job. Any help appreciated.

As far as i know you can automate windows update however you already need to have the updates installed within the same folder as the .bat, have you looked into programming with VB?

its a much more powerful language
