    There is an update for Java, Security, and Time Zone Change for OS X. If you haven't already updated, click on Apple> Software Update to get the latest updates.
    There are similar updates for Tiger.

    Hey, thanks for that!! I thought my computer was supposed to download updates automatically. I'm pretty sure I have that selected as an option, why would it ignore my command to download automatically??

    What frequency do you have set for checking for updates? I believe the default is weekly.

    If you want to change the update checks, open System Preferences and open Software Updates. Click the arrow beside Check for updates: and set it to Daily.

    Ok, it was actually set on daily, it just didn't download that update automatically. Also, the next day (yesterday) it downloaded another update, the WWAN Support Update. Do you have any idea why it didn't update my computer when it should have??

    Oh, I have Tiger, if that makes any difference in your response.

    I have Panther not Tiger. You may already had the update on your Tiger. This is from Apple Support.
    The 2007 time zone and Daylight Saving Time rule changes for the United States and most of
    Canada are already available in Mac OS X 10.4.5 or later.

    To my knowledge, and in my experience, the Mac OS will not automatically install anything without your approval (and password being entered). You can set Software Update to automatically download the updates, which should then alert you when one is available for installation, but it will not install it sua sponte.

    Good morning Vegas!! How have you been???

    I don't mind that it doesn't install without the password...I think that's great. However, it won't even DOWNLOAD the updates of it's own accord. I have had to manually check for updates, assuming I know about them, even though my computer is set up to do it automatically every day.

    My Mac just notifies me about an update, it doesn't download or install. If your system doesn't require the update, you won't be notified. If yours notified you about the WWAN Support Update, then it must be working correctly.
