Thanks for the reply I'm creating an image for the school I work at and I need update to be able to install with standard or power user account rights automatically for whatever date I set. Thanks.

hi fantom, you will need an admin account just once for this, afterwards all users will be able to install updates

type Windows update into the start menu, and click it.
on the left hand side click "Change Settings"
check the box marked "allow all users to install windows updates"
Click ok
done!
