    Is it necessary to do the windows update?

    We are always advised to do the updates, but why windows doesn't provide full package at a time this will make the new trend rather than updating all the things. for eg. I have microsoft office 7 and it is required for me to update for converting word file to .pdf.

    Hello,
    To be very honest with you there is not much of the need to update the windows OS everytime.
    In the updates you usually get the new applications which you can always download from the net.
    If you have a hard drive of good space and if your windows Copy is genuine than you can opt for updating your OS.

    If your Windows is Original one then you can get update online .

    But if you are using a pirated one then you can not update it .

    If you try to update the Windows being a Pirated user than you will be facing a problem which results in black screen .

    Windows Update will not provide this facility which you want.
    Also, there is no need to Update your Windows regularly. Once, you have installed Windows, it is enough. Also, if your Windows is illegal.
    Then, after installing Windows Update (especially Security Update), you may face problems.
    So, better for you to don't install Windows Updates.

    If you want to convert .doc file to .pdf, then you must download any third-party software from Internet.
    It would be easily available and you may much options. However, PDF converter of Adobe is also available.

    dear friend,

    no updating of window is not necessory.But if you want to be updated then you have to update the window regularly.

    As you said that whole package should be given in starting but they give you whole time,with time

    new updates keep coming,as technology keep changing so you have to change your window to compete with new formats.


    So my friend it is advisable to be updated .


    and if you have genuine window copy then you will get updated without any cost.

    best of lk.

    Re: Is it necessary to do the windows update?

    Hello friend,

    Every issue having its own merits and demerits.

    Windows update is also not having exception from this.

    Some people says YES and some says NO.

    You have clear details below read this and decide what to do.

    Most of us not using original OS, all are using dumped copy of windows except some professionals.

    Those people who are using original Windows will necessarily update their windows.

    But dumped copy of Windows will never update Windows and asks to get register with Microsoft and to get Genuine copy of windows.

    If you are using original copy of Windows better to enable Windows updates.

    If it is dumped then disable Windows update otherwise it will create new problems to you.

    So now take your decision.

    All the best

    hi my dear friend.....which is essential because

    Normally Windows updates are important since they fixes bugs and vulnerabilities (fix such as IE Windows Media Player Outlook etc as well as the OS itself) in the system, Things marked as Important such as security patches should be installed ASAP. although they dont bring new functions but makes the system up to date.



    Most of the time windows updates are for one of the following:

    1) Update software

    2) Critical Update (A released Fix for a discovered problem)

    3) Hot Fix (A release of several Fixes for problems)

    4) Security Update (Updates on NEW virus/spyware threats)

    5) Latest Version of Service Pack

    Re: Is it necessary to do the windows update?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say..........

    It is not that much necessary to update the software's regularly.
    But it is good to update the software for the security reasons from
    the hackers and the virus. As you update the software's you can
    make your system faster and more smoother.

    But when you want to update try to update the software from the
    recognized website only.

    Before updating you make sure that the website has no fault. You
    can get the correct information about in by the reviews of the viewers
    who had updated there software from that website before.

    But sometimes to get the full package of the software you have to
    pay some money from your bank account.

    I hope it will help you to solve your problem.

    Have a nice day............

    Re: Is it necessary to do the windows update?

    Hi,

    Yes, the answer to your question is YES. you need Windows update to keep your system updated and protact from outside influence.

    Whenever a program is developed there remains a lot of flaws in it and the manufacturers like Microsoft Develops Plug-ins, Patches, updates regularly to plug those holes those might create havoc otherwise.

    Say for example, A hacker can take advantage of a loophole to Phish your bank detail to rob you via internet.

    So periodical updates are a must.

    Thanks.

    Hi ..

    It is not that necessary to do the windows update .

    installing the updates results in the add on some features to your OS

    which are new .

    and latest . every older file will be replaced or renewed by updating

    if you do not install also their is no problem until your OS gets running smoothly

    and compatibly .

    Re: Is it necessary to do the windows update?

    Dear,


    I would like to clear one thing that

    1. Windows operating system is very large operating system (means larger chance of having bugs and loopholes in it) and


    2. There is always scope for improvement in any newly made system, due to which Microsoft cannot provide full package of Windows at a time.


    Moreover, the hackers create new threats constantly, due to which Microsoft has to constantly secure its operating system by providing constant updates.
    So it is advised always to have an updated system.


    And for your example given: to convert Word file to PDF, instead of updating Microsoft Office, you can use other file conversion software such as Adobe acrobat professional, Nitro PDF professional, etc.


    Thanks.
