to bring a system up-to-date, UpdateAgent 8 downloads the updaters over the

regular intervals, maintains the confidentiality of users' hard drive
contents, and provides hot web links to vendors' web sites.

any relevant updaters. It is compatible with all versions of the Mac OS
from System 7 to OS 9.
