Windows Update

Windows Update is one of the more important security sites that you will need to visit to keep the operating system and Internet Explorer up-to-date. This site also has more then security, it has optional updates like the .NET Framework.

You can bypass visiting this site all together by making sure that Automatic Update is enabled (with the exception of optional updates).
  • Open the Control Panel.
  • Open the System control panel.
  • Click the Automatic Update tab.
  • Make sure the "Automatic (Recommended)" radio button is selected.
  • Press the OK button.
Note: If you have Service Pack 2 installed, this option will be enabled by default.
