Quite similar as already done in TL2008. So girls and boys, please stop 
divagating and do try what was already done, as Norbert explained. Once 
-- download update-tlmgr-latest.exe and run it (on Win32; on Vista 
   right-click that .exe file and allow to run "as administrator")
-- when updating tlmgr by itself:
   1. please have a look at the message; exit tlmgr
   2. run "Final step..." by clicking the icon on desktop; after that the 
      icon will dissapear.
