Let PCs Hunt for Plug-Ins, Updates

Oil Change is software that keeps Windows 95 PCs running at peak performance by automatically retrieving and installing the latest software updates and hardware drivers from the Internet.

The program identifies all of a PCís software and hardware and then gives users a helpful list with descriptions of each available update. One then selects only the updates wanted, letting Oil Change download and safely install all the new software. It even saves a backup of everything it changes, letting one undo updates with one click.

Oil Change will hunt down new browser plug-ins, software patches, updates and hardware drivers. CyberMedia, Inc., Santa Monica, CA, (800) 721-7824, www.cybermedia.com
