Turn on the Automatic Updates feature
Important The Automatic Updates feature you are about to turn on will only download future Microsoft updates. You still need to use Windows Update to get up to date with previous updates. (We'll tell you how at the end of this step.)
|Use Up-to-Date Antivirus SoftwareUse Up-to-Date Antivirus Software|
|Switch to Category View|
|Choose Automatically download the updates and|
install them on a schedule that I specify
Important You can schedule Automatic Updates for any time of day. Remember, your computer must be on at the scheduled time for updates to be installed. (We recommend choosing a time when you will not be using the computer for other tasks.)
If you choose to have Automatic Updates notify you in step 5, you will see a notification balloon when new downloads are available to install.
Click the notification balloon to review and install updates.

Next, get up to date with Windows Update
Now that you have Automatic Updates turned on, you will receive all new critical and security-related updates automatically. However, Automatic Updates does not download previously released updates or non-critical updates. Use these instructions to bring your computer up to date with previous security updates now, and to get non-critical updates in the future.
Tip Some updates cannot be installed until you restart your computer. Be sure to return to Windows Update after restarting and check for additional updates. You might have to do this several times to ensure you have all the latest updates.
