So, how many of you install windows updates? Just wondering:3eyes:
Your poll should have "some" as an option. I don't take all of them.
Well of course.
Ummm... Why wouldn't you? (except for a few)
All important updates,yes!
Yes i instal, if something dies, or is incompatable i can always restore to earlier time.
However i do ask to be informed before updates though, just coz i like to see what the updates are for.
yes, pointless thread sorry
Yeah I do, but I turn off automatic and just do it myself every week or two.
Not done it for a while though (no SP1 etc). But that's because I'm over due a format and need to sort some stuff out first so I can't be bothered to do it when I will need to do it again mid april anyway.
manually on all laptops/desktops/servers/workstations auto update has the worst times to do it half the time when i am actually doing something I could use scheduler but meh
Was just curious because I've heard of some people that dont
Just service packs and software updates, but not windows update.
I let Windows notify me when an update is available but I do not let it download updates automatically. So far, there have been only two "important" updates I have chosen not to install and the rest have all been installed pretty much immediately.
Like my previous speakers - i only install the most important updates.
Yes, critical security updates manually every Tuesday (auto is disabled). Why you asked, not sure, why I posted, don’t know. :3eyes:
Yes, I do, although I set it up to run manually. I hate it on auto, as when on that setting, and you're in the middle of something and Windows decides to reboot for you....I think you get the point.
Yess, I wasn't the only person that chose No. I haven't updated windows since I reinstalled. I have Background Intelligent Service and Windows update disabled along with many other services. I hate when programs check for updates themselves. I prefer to look myself every few months. Hell I only updated my GPU drivers like twice so far since buying it the day it came out. 99% BSOD free, and no problems with spyware/malware/adware since Win7 RC (even the beta was good).
I'm not really worried about security crap, I could care less really. Although I monitor everything thats going on in my system, I'm aware if something doesn't look right like suspicious processes. I look at my processes so much that I can tell which ones I use everyday with all my programs (typically 38-44 processes are open on average). I don't use any anti virus or stuff like. I do however randomly scan once a year with Kaspersky (hey, its free). It usually takes about an hour, but it never finds anything...
Then I just continue my life knowing I have a problem free PC.
Yes I install updates. What is the reason not to upgrade ?
