An update might include a time saving new feature, critical security updates, or bug fixes to the software.

If you select the “automatically download” option for updates the Intuit Update Service will periodically check Intuit’s servers via the Internet for updates. If an update is available, it will be automatically downloaded and you will be prompted to install that update the next time you start your software.
