7.11   Automated OS Updates and Patches

Added 20 September 2004.

It is imperative that people keep their licensed copy of Microsoft Windows up to date.   If you do not keep MS Windows current then you are susceptible to computer virii and worms.   Every night the TCC updates its copies of MS Windows from the Microsoft web site.   We store those updates on our server windowsupdate.nmt.edu.   If you wish to ensure that your copy of MS Windows is current download the file http://infohost.nmt.edu/tcc/download/NMT_Windows_Update and execute the self-extracting file.   The installation instructions are included in the file.   It will install a task on your computer that automatically connects to the TCC server windowsupdate.nmt.edu every day and update your licensed copy of MS Windows.   (There is no charge for this service.)
