http://www.liberiangeek.net – Even though we’d recommend that you don’t connect your Windows systems to the Internet without some basic firewall software installed for fear that your systems may be compromised, updating and installing recommended updates from Microsoft will do just enough to prevent some of the most popular viruses and spyware program from infecting your systems. Our main goal is that you install trusted firewall application to protect your computer from harmful programs. If you just don’t want do that now, then updating your systems regularly will help.   If you want to know how to apply regular updates or patches to your Windows systems, I’ll show you how.     Applying updates on Windows 7 systems     1) Click Start –> All Programs –> Windows Update       2) Click check for update link. When you get a prompt to install updates, click the Install update button as shown below. Wait for the updates to install. You may have to restart your computer after updating.       Applying updated to Windows Vista Systems     1) Click Start –> All Programs –> Windows Update       2) Click on Check for update link on the left. When prompted to install updates, click the Install update button. You may have to restart your computer when done.     3) When prompted to install Internet Explorer 8, click the Install button and continue. Next agree to the license terms and continue.       Applying updates to Windows XP systems     1) Click Start –> All Programs –> Windows Update     2) Next click the Express update button and continue. When prompted to install, click the Install Update button.     3) Wait for the process to complete. At the Internet Explorer 8 install screen, click Install to continue.     4) Accept the license terms and click I accept to continue. When prompted again, click Next. Your computer may have to restart depending on the updates being installed.       Remember is a manual process. You’ll have to do this every time you need your system updated. To automate the process, you need to setup automatic update in the control panel. That approach is the best because it automatically updates and installs patches whenever possible.   Have a great day and come back soon. Join the forum discussion on this post — (1) Posts (HowTos)
