    Unless its a very critical update,Microsoft releases updates or patches on a
    monthly basis. Just go to the Windows Update page and you can see what you
    might not have. Microsoft does not send out what I would call a upgrade, but
    does post the patches and needed software.

    Some times there are tons of updates, especially with a new OS, after some
    time these usually slow down and Microsoft releases what is called a
    "Service Pack" that fixes all the things that do not work.
    Hope this helps

    While some OEMs may have regular shipments of security items which they may
    or may not include in their installed package, all of us can download those
    as they become available by using Auto Update or regularly visiting the
    Windows Update web site. Don't rely on the manufacturer of your machine to
    keep your computer updated.

    The next major update for the Windows XP Pro operating system is due around
    mid-year, 2004, in SP2 which will feature many security items as described
    here:

    Around that same time, the updated Tablet PC Edition (the superset on top of
    XP Pro) will have its own free update:
