Are your security patches up to date? If you are not absolutely certain, Secunia is offering a free tool to check:

"A Danish security vendor is offering a free tool designed to inform users when their applications need patching.

Secunia released the beta version of Personal Software Inspector for download, a client program that periodically checks to see if new updates have been issued for some 4,200 applications."

Remember, this version is a 'beta' and may have the usual glitches that are associated with early releases. However, this concept could keep your system up to date and a bit more secure. And it is free.

No bad, Some software programs will check on startup to see if patches are available and download and install those patches.

I have removed those links from your signature. Considering the contents of your posts, it would appear that your only purpose for registering here was to post links in a thinly vailed attempt to drive traffic to a site that you are obviously affliated with. Do not post them again.

Hope is not a method.
