If you’re on 95, 98, ME or 2000, go to the Recommended Updates (I think) section of Windows Update and download the Windows Update Notification utility. This’ll let you know whenever anything new comes out. If you’re on XP, go to Control Panel, then System (or ‘Performance and Maintanence’, then ‘System’). Go to ‘Automatic Updates’ and select at a minimum ‘Notify me…’, but preferably ‘Download the updates automatically…’ and click Ok. This’ll make sure you’re always kept up-to-date. I know it’s a pain, but it’s just one of those things. As ever, see the Ballistic Advice page for more info.
