Yes, SMS, AIM, MOM, etc. When we have to do a large number of "pushes" with those tools, there are almost always issues with a high percentage of the workstations that require manual intervention. Bear in mind that we have an standard image so all the workstations are configured the same. It usually has to do with conflicts with the registry, other software, DLL Hell, etc.
