windows xp automatic updates

To compliment this site and all the online computer tutorials on offer I have setup a computer help forum where you can go to ask your questions.

It is quite important that we keep our PC updated to avoid security vulnerabilities.
The easiest way to do this is to have it set to receive automatic updates.
I will show you below how to do this


Left click on 'start'
Left click on 'Control Panel' ( 'This will open up a new window' )
Double left click on 'Automatic Updates' ( 'This will open up a new window' )

You are now given 4 options
1, Automatic ( 'Recommended' )
2, Download them for me but let me choose when to install them
3, Notify me but dont Automaticaly download or install them
4,Turn off Automatic Updates
Make your selection by placing a check mark in one of the available boxes
Select 'OK'
Your done close all open windows.
