Here’s a video on how to force a Windows Update.
Why would you want to force a Windows Update?
There are several reasons you may now want to wait for an automatic Windows Update:
- You have had the computer off for a while and need to make sure it is safe before you browse the web.
- Microsoft releases an out of band update for an exploit currently in use in malware (as was the case when I made this video).
- Maybe like me, you just like to do the updates yourself so you know what is being updated.
- You just are not sure Windows is completely updated and safe and you want to check
- You need to update to Windows XP Service Pack 3 (or later)
Whatever the case, there are times when you may need to check or do the update yourself instead of waiting. I have found that some people are not sure how to do an update so I made this video.
Here is the video on updating Windows.
