Are you wondering why it is important to install those annoying updates that popup in the corner of your desktop.
These are called update notifications and are from Microsoft telling you your computer is out dated and needs to be updated.
It is very important to keep Windows updated. Microsoft releases patches all the time. Not all patches are important but the ones that say critical should be installed right away.
If Windows is not updated on a regular basis your computer may be vulnerable to hackers. This Windows update tool can be found on any Windows system ranging from Windows 95 all the way up to Windows 7.
Newer operating systems like XP, Vista and Windows 7 all have Windows updates that automatically install the updates. If you are not sure where to find the updates you can also go to Microsoft’s website. http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
