  Operating Systems Update
  For your home computer, allways remember to have your system updated with the latest patches:
  If you have Windows XP installed, download the Windows XP Service Pack 2 and activate the Automatic Updates feature.

For other Windows versions, visit Microsoft Windows update website. This will scan your computer and will detect which updates are available for the current configuration. Then, you may download and install the adequate updates.


Macintosh users may find the system update on this Apple security page.

  How can I tell which version of Windows I have?
  Go to the Start"menu and select Run. Type "winver" and click OK. This will pop up an About Windows box. You must have Windows 2000 (service pack 3 or higher) or Windows XP (service pack 1 or higher) to use the SUS.
  I have Windows 2000/XP but don't have the correct service pack.
  You can install the latest service pack (and all critical updates) by using Windows Update. Start Internet Explorer and select Tools ---> Windows Update.
  How can I tell which updates have been applied?
  If you run Windows Update, select "View installation history" under "Other Options". This will list all the updates installed.
