    I know a lot people subscribe to Bigfix which monitors their pc for MS Windows updates.
    Does anyone feel this is a security risk? I want to know if it is safe to subscribe because I know so little about the organisation. Has anyone had any problems with it?

    I subscribe to AVG anti virus package which monitors and informs me for updates but that is all and I am happy with it.

    I would be glad for any opinions or thoughts

    Many thanks in advance

    Its safe. And it doesnt monitor for just windows updates, its for updating all software on your comp.
    I prefer CNET CatchUP, but its no longer available :(.
