Windows Update

One new feature of Windows XP is that you can tell it to update itself and some of the hardware drivers over the Internet. (Of course, to use this feature you have to be online.) You access it from the Help and Support section of the Start menu by selecting Keep your computer up-to-date with Windows Update. That will take you to the Windows Update screen, where you can click Scan for updates. Windows will then check your hardware and software and then go to a special Microsoft Web site to see whether anything has been modified since your machine was last updated. If there are updates, Windows will automatically download the new software for you to install.

Getting Additional Help

For additional help, consult the Knowledge Base on Microsoft's Web site (http://search.support.microsoft.com). It's the same tool that Microsoft tech support people use when they're baffled.
