Improve Windows Security Awareness and Automate Patching of All Programs

Patching is more important than antivirus and malware as the patches close holes that are exploited by these infections.

I currently use and highly recommend for anyone with Windows to install Secunia PSI on their computers. I have used it since version 0.9 and it is great.

Secunia PSI is free for personal use software made by a security company. It helps alert you when programs on your computer have security vulnerability alerts released for the installed. The beta can auto patch popular programs in the background: Flash, Firefox, Winamp, Adobe reader, and others if you would like. It could alternatively provide the link to the update's download and provide more info on the vulnerability that was reported. According to the site people increased their security by 15%.

To learn more or get the download for Secunia PSI go to:
