1.4. Windows Update

Finally, I’d like to note the Windows Update feature in Windows XP. Since its initial release, Microsoft has made many updates to the software available on its web site, as shown in Figure 1-1. These range from simple bug fixes and security updates to monolithic Service Packs (more on these in a moment). If you are using Service Pack 2, your computer has already been configured to download and install new updates automatically. If not, it’s highly recommended that you regularly run the Windows Update feature, or enable the Automatic Updates tool so that you’ll never be without the latest fixes. See “Windows Update” for more information.
