Hi

I am using Microsoft windows xp professional. I want to do windows update. But in the control panel I can see the option of automatic update rather than the windows update. Are the two options same.

Please advice

Yes, they are the same.  Automatic Update controls how and when  the system will do an automatic Windows Update.  Incidentally, Windows Update is now also called Microsoft Update.

You can do it manually by picking "Windows Update" from the Internet Explorer Tools menu.
