The company I am working for recently sent out an email asking us to install three updates. They made them available on a file share, but over the VPN, access is hideously slow. So I wanted to see if three service packs were already installed on my computer. I googled this and got nowhere fast. I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but Google is horrible sometimes. Anyway, you just go to Control Panel, select Add or Remove Programs, and then check the “Show Updates” check box.
