    A windows update is an update provided by Microsoft that contains some tweaks and improvements that will help your PC.for example there might be a glitch like something not working in your OS an update would do the thing,If you are using a genuine version of Windows running in your PC then it is recommended to update

    if you are not using a genuine version its better you turn off this feature as Microsoft may find that


    and a word on antivirus.
    there is a survey saying that every minute 6 new virus is written.so if you dont update your Anti-virus lets say for 1 month think how much new virus would be written??and if your PC is connected to internet then there is a good chance that those virus may affect your PC.So its a must to update Anti-Virus

    Hello,

    Operating system

    There are many changes happening day to day
    So to keep updated from the latest software and applications you can update your operating system.
    Although updating the operating system is not a neccesity.

    Anti Virus
    But on the other hand you must keep your antivirus Updated.
    The main aim of the anti virus is to check for the virus and mallicious content on your computer.
    And there are many new types of viruses which are created everyday.
    So an anti virus must be kept updated in order to keep your computer intact from the virus and other attacks.

    Regards
    -Abhishek

    This is the best way to install drivers, and it is the first place to visit if you discover that Windows 7 Setup did not install all of your hardware.The hardware drivers found on Windows Update are not always as up-to-date as those supplied directly from the hardware manufacturers. That said, Windows Updatebased drivers have been tested extensively and should always be your first choice. Note that Windows 7 will likely connect to Windows Update automatically if you have a configured network adapter, grabbing any device drivers it can, within minutes of booting into the desktop for the first time.


    Like Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7 includes an Automatic Updates feature that can automatically download and install critical security fixes from Microsoft the moment they are released. Action Center ensures that Automatic Updates is enabled.

    Update means to make your Windows or Anti-virus up to date.
    It will install latest features of your software. So, that your software will be up-to-date.
    That's why computer users do update.

    After doing update, your Windows will install new features like Security Update, new drivers, language packs, etc.
    For Antivirus, it is very necessary to do updates. Because, if your antivirus is not updated. Your computer may be infected with new viruses.

    Yes, updating is good for your computer. As you know computer contains many windows files, and hence it has to be updated to make it up to date. There is basically .dll files which is generally updated as you connect your computer from internet. In doing updating your computer, you have not to be worried about errors or viruses.
    And hence according to my suggestion I will prefer for updating the computer.
    Similar case for antivirus updates. In that, viruses definition are updated till that date. It is necessary because the new type of viruses come in market daily and it must be defined in antivirus to fight that viruses and make your system free from viruses and hence useful

    The operating Software that you are using, possibly a version of Windows, is manufactured by a gr group of software engineers employed by Microsoft.

    No software is fool proof and complete, there were many a problems and flaws remained which the software engineers try to remove by developing small programs which will patch up the holes in the OS.
    These small programs are called Updates,
    They should always be installed to make the OS fault free and unvulnerable.

    Same happens with antivirus, updating the main program and the virus database keeps the antivirus up to date and protects the system perfectly.
