Regularly updating your computer system software will keep you safer from hackers, worms, bugs, and other bad things. Follow these simple instructions to keep your Mac up-to-date.
One of the most important things you can do to protect your computer and the data on it is to keep your system software up to date. Apple makes this relativly easy for you to do this in Mac OS X using the "Software Update" tool from the System Preferences.
It is a good idea to run the "Software Update" tool once a week to make sure your system software is up to date. You should also run it if you hear of a problem affecting Apple computers.
Here is what you need to do:
You can also tell your computer to automatically check for new updates. Select "Check Daily" to enable this feature.
It is generally a good idea to do your day-to-day work on a non-privledged user account (like "home"), so that you can't accidentally break something and so that a virus or worm in an e-mail cannot change your system. You should only log in to an administration account to do things like install new sofware or to apply Security Updates. Then log out and log back in to your regular user account.
