Updating Your Application Software
Windows is called the "Operating System". Almost every other thing on your Computer is "Application Software" and it is important to keep your application software up to date and "patched".
We all have different software installed on our computers, many have a "Check for Update" option but many don't.
An online tool by Secunia can be found here http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/ . This is the online cousin of their often recommended free tool Secunia Personal Software Inspector or PSI.
This tool will analyse your computer and check whether there is a new version of the software installed on your computer available and if so help you install it. Note that this is just the bare minimum version. The PSI version you can download does a far more comprehensive job and still free for personal use.
