Update Windows

Keeping your computer up-to-date is vital to ensure maximum protection against viruses and malware. Microsoft and antivirus program companies both strive to protect you as much as possible and this results in daily updates being required more often than not.

Luckily, all of this can be set up automatically with Microsoft using 'Windows Update' and your antivirus program will automatically update daily to block the latest known threats.

Turning on Automatic Updates via Control Panel

First, click on Start and click on Control Panel. Double-click on Windows Updates to bring up the configuration dialog. If you’re in Category view, you’ll have to click on Security Center.
