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

As some of you know, the standard Microsoft OS distribution sold
in stores on CD is a year or so old, and doesn't include any recent
patches. You needed to download recent patches from Microsoft's
web site. Unfortunately, with the latest round of worms, Windows
doesn't survive on the net long enough to downdload patches.

Which is why Microsoft should issue a software equivelant of a recall. 
Systems shouldn't be sold vulnerable without at least a patch CD.
