    Hi all,

    I'm trying to find a freeware program that will allow me to remote install programs onto other computers, both on a workgroup and a domain.

    We just rolled over from Symantec to Trend Micro, and was using psexec.exe from Sysinternals.com, but unfortunately, my superiors found out that psexec.exe was being deleted by Trend. Apparently, psexec.exe has been used by worms and such, and they were wondering why I was asking to have the program itself (which is harmless by itself) whitelisted. I lost that little battle. :wtc:

    So now I'm screwed. Now, instead of running a few scripts to complete updates, I now have to touch over 100 computers to run updates. :hsd:

    Anyone have any suggestions for me?

    net support agent lets you push installs to all clients.

    Kaseya also does, but it's money+++

    (like $20 per seat/month IIRC)
