System Updates: What are they? Why Do I need them?

wecanrepairanylaptopor pcinperryhallmarylandMicrosoft Update is a service that allows for the periodic patching of system files to address known issues with Microsoft products. There are several categories of Microsoft updates:

Service Packs – Service Packs which contain a rollup of all patches to date for a specific piece of software or operating system and usually have additional feature changes.

Critical Updates – Critical Updates are to fix any major issue that is found in Microsoft products that could cause software errors or unexpected behavior.

Software Updates – Non-critical issues, such as extended features and minor bugs.

Security Updates – These updates patch security vulnerabilities that could allow a system to become compromised. Security updates are classified as Critical, Important, Moderate, Low, or non-rated.

Microsoft Updates prevent problems.  Not only do Microsoft Updates fix known bugs in software and operating systems, but they plug critical security holes that could drastically affect your security. Microsoft vulnerabilities are actively exploited in countless viruses, which could have been easily prevented by maintaining updates.

Connected PC Solutions advises users should keep Windows as up to date as possible. Ignoring these could leave your computer extremely vulnerable to hackers and malicious code.
