    Sadly, Autopatcher has had to close down. The OP needs to use Windows
    Update.

    Yeah seems MS shut them down... didn't want it to be too easy to get updates
    I figure....
    and of course there is the chance that someone could put up an update site
    and stick in
    a bunch of malware..... (yeah I know some claim malware is MS primary goal
    )
