Keeping Your Installed Software Updated
More and more applications have “automatic update” features built into them. If possible, you should verify that you are at a version of the software that is capable of scheduling updates to occur automatically. Major operating system providers, like Microsoft and Apple, have a single facility that updates software developed by them.
