Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
For Software updates, click the Apple logo in the MENU BAR and click "Software update..."
You can also set Software update to run every week:
Open System Preferences (in the applications folder) and click Software update.
Also... how do I know what version operating system I have, I think it says 10.5.3, but I see an update for 10.5.2 and so that can't be right can it?
To see if you have the latest version, click the Apple logo in the MENU BAR and click "About this Mac"
You should have 10.5.2
Hope this helps!

1. Use Software Update on the pulldown menu to make certain your updates are verified. Apple/Software Update . There's no reason to scour the web for update sites; download from your desktop.
2. Update Permissions once a week, and perhaps download and use the free MainMenu to handle other routine tasks. http://www.santasw.com/

4. If you watch the discussions, you'll notice a near absence of any mention of viruses and such. Observe ordinary care.

I use Brad Flaugher's excellent "Maintenance Widget." It handles permission repairs and allows you to trigger Unix cron scripts manually. Download it at http://www.bradflaugher.com/Blackbook, the MacBook's evil twin, Mac OS X (10.5.2), I also have a WhiteBook and a iBook G4
