Windows Updates

We’ve had a few computers in for repair this week which have either had no updates for the Windows operating system installed or are very far behind with them.

Microsoft issue updates for supported Windows operating systems every Tuesday. When you are online, and provided your computer is set to receive them automatically (most are), they are downloaded in the background, and when the download is complete, they are installed when you next switch off.

Its important to keep the updates up to date, as they fix problems with Windows, and plug security flaws which pop up all too often with Microsoft software. Thankfully there are usually only a few per week, but if none have ever been installed it can be a time consuming job to put them all in.

If you aren’t sure if your computer is receiving updates, or if you think there is a problem, please contact us for advice and help.
