Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Patching a computer refers to applying program and application updates to the software. Most programs will do this on their own. When a program launches there is a job that will see if you are running the latest version, if not it may do a patch/update automatically or download the newer version and give you instructions to follow to apply the patch/update. If there is something particular you are looking to patch, let us know what OS and application.

    What did you mean by patch a computer? In general patch refers to anti-virus software, that they are using to update their virus database/simply update. OS level path is also there. like security update/windows update method. These are all guess, until again you clarify the same, it is not possible to provide good replies.
