          So, did you need help with anything... or were you just venting?

           

          I have nine (9) machines with eight (8) different OS builds.

          EVERY week I have to check for and, most times, install updates for:

          • Windows XP (no more updates for the OS)
          • Windows Vista
          • Windows 7
          • Windows 8 (two machines)
          • Windows 8.1
          • Mac OS 10.6.8 Server
          • Mac OS 10.7.5
          • Mac OS 10.8.5
          • Mac OS 10.9.2

          Microsoft Office:

          • Office 2003 (XP)

          Roxio:

          • Roxio Media Creator (ALL windows machines)
          • Roxio Toast (ALL Mac machines)

          Java:

          EVERYWHERE I can, I update all of the above MANUALLY.  And those are just MY machines. I have four family members and three clients whose stuff I have to keep up to date as well.

           

          You have it easy, I think.

            Just curious: what exactly do you hate?

             

            The download takes 1 or 2 seconds, the install 3 to 5, and then it's all done.  It's one of the easiest installs of any applications I know.
