Default Automatically launch web page

Can you please help. I have a third party program that checks for patch updates. If a patch is not applied on a machine, it writes an entry into a SQL database. As soon as that entry is written to the SQL database, I would like to automatically launch a web page on the relevant machine telling the user to update a particular product. How do I go about doing this. In particular how would I:
- automatically launch a web page and
- launch it on the effected machine.

Thank You

You need SQL Notification Services. You can use this free addon to SQL 2000 from MS to monitor for changes to a result set and then send an email to the user with a link to the webpage.

With SQL 2005 you can subscribe to these events. So you would need to write a win client that subscribes to the event, and then when the event is fired it can then launch the page
