Abstract

The autonomic self-updating software agent continuously gathers information about which applications are being accessed by users on a computer system, and then searches for fixes to recommend and/or download and install. The autonomic software agent covers a full range of software applications on the computer system, and selectively recommends and/or installs fixes only for applications that are relevant to the users.
