Windows Update is a means of constantly improving the Microsoft produt, and also a means of correcting oversights in the original programmes.

It includes plugging holes, overflows and other gaps that allow a virus or two to enter your machine.

Others in this forum may use different language when describing updates.

You will also find some dissent as to whether or not you should use these updates, however most people take advantage of this free improvement service

First thing is read the 'Please ensure that your thread title accurately describes your subject', and put something like 'Windows Update' as the title, not your nickname!

Windows updates are downloaded from Microsoft. As they find 'fixes' for problems, you have the opportunity to instal 'patches' on your PC. You don't have to, it's your choice.
