Automatic updates updating your computer is almost complete
easy depends on how Windows Update is configured to download and apply updates.
When you first turned on your new computer or were finishing your Windows operating system install, you told Windows Update how you wanted it to act - a little more automatic or a little more manual.
And don't expect to use your computer again soon; depending on the speed of your drive and the size of the update, it could be anywhere from 10 minutes to well over an hour before your PC is ready for work.
But my Windows laptop -- a Windows laptop in a sea of Mac Books! I figured it just needed a quick reboot, so that's what I did.
Choose how updates are delivered: These options allow you to enable or disable the downloading, as well as the uploading, of Windows Update related files around your local network or even the entire internet.Never check for updates (not recommended): This option disables Windows Update completely in Windows 8, 7, or Vista.When you choose this, Windows Update won't even check with Microsoft to see if important security patches are available.Here's a bit more on all of those options you have: Install updates automatically (recommended): Choose this option to have Windows Update automatically check for, download, and install important security patches.Download updates but let me choose whether to install them: Choose this to have Windows Update automatically check for and download important updates but install them.
