I have a company (+150 users) and I would like to allow users to update Java, FLASH and Adobe Reader only.
These software are already installed in the hosts, but there are updates of the program every week and it needs to be updated.
How can I give permissions to every user in the domain to do that? Just "Java, FLASH and Adobe Reader"
Remember that I dont want distribute software because they were installed.
I tried to enable "Enable user to patch evelated products" directive but it didn't work at my domain.
is it possible?

Like Andreas already said, there is no way without giving them the Administrator's permissions.
I would recommend you, patch your flash, java and so on with WSUS and LUP:

I have a method that works for FLASH player, but am trying to come up with a method for the other 2 myself. To automate flash player, I created a Policy and added the following:
Under Computer Config, Prefrences, Windows Setting, Files I created a new File Item.
I set Action = Replace, Created a Source File named mms.cfg* (more below) and have the destination file as systemroot%\System32\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg (or %systemroot%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg for x64)
I used notepad to edit the mms.cfg, and used the following in the body:
My non-admin users now update flash in the background silently and automatically.
