Description
With current implementation, AutoUpdate process caches the update information from xml file.
Once cached, this information is not updated/refreshed even if the xml file content is changed and the 'Update Available' balloon is shown multiple times.

Sometimes, some of this xml file content is changed to reflect new messages/text or new sponsors etc. But this new information does not get to the user, even when the balloon is shown multiple times. To fix this, AutoUpdate process should check the xml file, everytime before the balloon is shown. And also Should check map xml for any changes before proceeding with installation, only if user is online.
