Video-How To Update Windows Manually

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.
