ya ! automatic updates isn't the best way to protect yourself if you want the latest patches as soon as possible !

if u have automatic updates 'on', chances are high that ur pc may download and install, what are known as MS06-040 patches, immediately. however, automaticupdates may not start downloading most patches until three days after Patch Tuesday ! it's understandable that microsoft would want MS06-040 to be installed on as many people's PCs as possible before downloading any other patches.

for complete novices, who have little knowledge of Windows, its best they leave automatic updates turned on and hope for the best. but more experienced windows users, manually visiting the update site or installing a third-party patch-management program remains the better option.
