Lets remove another vector that can put our children and general computer security in danger when we are online. I’m wanted to show everyone a quick way to patch our window runtimes.
What are runtimes you say?
Runtimes are essentially small applications that help websites and our interaction with them run efficiently. For Example, if a website has a movie file that we want to play on our computer, we need Flash or Shockwave to play that movie. Think of it like helper applications to make our web experience enjoyable.
What if we don’t update these? The main problem are new
that get developed daily…hourly! Yikes! Alot of viruses these days are targeting a non patched or non updated runtime such as Flash, Shockwave, Java etc.
Ninite.com is a site that helps update and patch these runtimes in a quick and efficient mannor And its FREE. Once you double click the attached file, ninite will start working immediately, and will update the runtimes to the latest and greatest. It doesn’t install any extra toolbars nor does it ask you for choices. I’ve linked the RuntimePatcher.exe for download.
Another really great feature of Ninite is when you have a new computer, you can select all the apps you use regularly and can install them at once instead of going to each application and downloading them and installing them one at a time… super time consuming and annoying. Also dont forget to visit ninite.com for tons of other apps that you can download and update.
