[unisog] Keeping up with Win OS critical updates

I've been looking at UpdateExpert by St Bernard Software, but haven't had
much time to play with it. You can manage any number of machines and push
hotfixes down to them. The only problem I've found is that I have a hard
time keeping the program from rebooting the machines right away, so I'm not
sure about use on servers, though with scheduling this would not be a
problem.
