Patching the Security Update Process

Recent research shows that the typical PC user needs to install a security update roughly every five days in order to safely use Microsoft Windows and all of the third-party programs that typically run on top of it.

The five-day figure comes from information collected by Secunia, which pored over statistics from some two million users of its free Personal Software Inspector (PSI) tool, a program designed to alert users about outdated and insecure software running on their machines. Secunia found that the typical Microsoft Windows user has more than 66 programs from more than 22 different software vendors on his or her computer.
