Automatic updating vista
When you set Microsoft Windows Vista to update automatically, it will start downloading the latest patches when available and install them without ant intervention from you.Although you can manually obtain updates and patches, Windows Update also allows you to automate the update and patch process.Although my system is 64 bits the listed requirements did not specify 32 bits.However, when I attempted to install it stated update not for my system.On the first Tuesday of every month, the software giant Microsoft releases patches and updates to its different software products including Microsoft Windows.Although you can download these patches manually and install them, but it is better if this downloading and installing process is automatic.Being a retired EE digital signal processor, I know the complexities of code contributed by hundreds if not thousands of SW engineers to build and maintain an OS.I'm curious what this magic update fixed for Kelly B56 and me.
I ended up using the PC last night and realised firefox was still on 3.0.1 (and the check for updates menu option is disabled).
If you want to update Firefox for ALL the users on the computer, you are going to need sign to do the updates as an administrator. If that doesn't help, check Firefox install folder (usually C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox) if there is file.
