Microsoft Windows Security - Keep Your Windows Operating System Up To Date
Probably the most important step to do is checking for the latest security updates and patches available for your Windows operating system.
To get the security updates automatically, go to "Control Panel" and check if your automatic updating system is enabled or follow these steps:
- Access the search box in your Windows operating system, type Windows Update
- Select Advanced options
- Click on Automatically download updates in case it is not already selected/turned on
After checking for available updates for your Windows operating system, keep the automatic update turned on in order to download and install the important updates that can help protect your PC against new viruses or next-generation malware.
Always remember to keep your OS up to date with the latest security available. Software patching remains an essential key to improve online safety and security experts make a good case of emphasizing its importance. Cybercriminals still try to benefit from security holes found in users' systems and PCs. That's one of the reasons why cyber attacks still work and they make a lot of money of it.
