Control Your Updates

Windows XP can automatically update itself. That means any time you go online it will look for any new Hotfixes that you might need. But, what if you don't want more control over the updating? Maybe you want to see what the hotfix does before you install it. Guess what? You can.

Right-click "My Computer" and choose "Properties". Click on the "Automatic Updates" tab. There you'll find the control panel for Auto updates.

By default it's probably set to "Automatic". You can set how often it automatically updates: every day, or a particular day of the week. You can even choose the time.

The next option downloads the updates, but lets you choose when to install them. This is where I keep mine set.

Another tells you when updates are available but doesn't install them until you give the go-ahead.

You can also turn off automatic updates, but it's not recommended.

It's nice to have control.
