Windows xp updating time
Only the absolute newest of Microsoft products (Exchange 2007, Windows Vista, and Windows Mobile 6) have these changes built in.
Many workstations, servers, and handheld devices need to be updated to reflect this change.
If your original decision isn't working out, or you need to change how it works to avoid repeating an auto-update issue, like what happens on some Patch Tuesdays, you can simply adjust how Windows receives and installs updates.
Automatic (recommended): Choose this option to automatically download and install updates of all kind—both important security patches as well as not-as-important non-security updates, like feature improvements and minor bugs.
Notify to schedule restart: Choose this option to automatically download updates of all kind—security, and non-security.
Updates that don't require a restart will install right away but ones that do won't restart your computer without your permission.
Of course you can still download Security Essentials for Windows 7 and it’s rolled into one antimalware and antivirus utility in Windows 8.1 under the familiar name Windows Defender.
In fact, MSE has been together with Windows Defender as a single unit since Windows 8 first hit the market.
Open 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.According to an article on the MSDN blog: If you already have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, you will continue to receive antimalware signature updates for a limited time, but this does not mean that your PC will be secure because Microsoft will no longer provide security updates to help protect your PC.Microsoft was vague on exactly how long antimalware updates will be provided to MSE.Allow all users to install updates on this computer: Check this if you have other, non-administrator accounts on your computer that actually get used. However, even when unchecked, updates installed by an administrator will still get applied to those user accounts, they just won't be able to install them.Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows: Check this option, which is a bit wordier in Windows 7 & Vista, if you own other Microsoft software and you want Windows Update to handle updating those as well.
