    Word! Definetly get a firewall.

    If you are looking for a free firewall, try ZoneAlarm.

    I've been using Zone Alarm for quite a while. The best thing about it is that its free. Another indispensible program is Ad-aware 6.

    Ha! No. Our admin here does Windows Updates individually.

    You can schedule the PC's to do it automatially in the Windows Update options, but when they're all downloading the patch at the same time your Internet connection will get rinsed!

    I'm on a dial up network & that took a life time just to install three or four patches at the same time. Broadband would be quicker but the only other option to have 500 PC's patched quicker would be a sepearate line for each one & that equals dollars!!

    It's Microsoft. Nuff said.


    There are ways to mass-install Windows Update patches... They involve silent installs using commandline switches placed into the startup scripts file on Windows NT-based networks. I won't go into details here though, frankly because I cannot be arsed. :p
