Re: Microsoft distributes free CDs in Japan to patch Windows

Microsoft has a task scheduler that people should learn to use to remind
them to check update to make sure their patches are current, it is
located in the control panel and labled Scheduled Tasks and has an
Add Scheduled Tasks icon to add update, FYI
