Could someone please explain to me why I am getting automatic updates, two or three times a week?

This seems to be a bit excessive - is it?

best advice is to make sure you have all critical updates installed asap.with the latest batch of virus's going around.

Hackers don't stop at the weekend.

Be thankful. :o)

As far as I'm concerned you can never be too careful.

never finished thread)..with the latest batch of virus's going around this will help with avoiding
problems later if you become venerable.

Venerable? = old and respected. Surely you mean Vulunerable = weak and defenceless.

ah, but are they the same updates or new ones?

  Southernboy 00:08 12 Sep 2003

always instal critical updates?

Oh you spoil sport - I was hoping to be venerable - er in a few years - don't know about the "old" bit! Grin.

Regarding the updates, methinks some of these are being duplicated - all the critical updates - "vulnerable" areas of XP seem to be covered.

Thanks folk
