Question of the Week

Question:  "It seems like my Windows 10 computer is constantly updating.  What's with that?  I don't remember Windows 7 updating so much."

Answer:  First, let me apologize to my Mac users as this question covers Windows machines only.
For those of you with Windows 10 machines, it is true that updates come more frequently than in prior Windows versions.  Here's why that is happening:
Many years ago, Microsoft - at the urging of IT guys who were handling hundreds or even thousands of computers - delivered security updates on the second Tuesday of the month.  The only time they deviated from the schedule was if there was an "emergency" update to cover some major security flaw which had been uncovered and was being used by hackers.  This system worked pretty well until we moved to the age of "zero day exploits." 
(In plain English, this means that hackers often compromise computers the very day a security flaw is uncovered.)  With Microsoft's old system, theoretically, a computer could be vulnerable for 30 days until the next round of updates on the second Tuesday of the month.
In an effort to make Windows 10 the most secure Windows operating system ever, Microsoft dropped the once-a-month update release in favor of pushing out a security update whenever it was ready to go. 
In other words, it's not just your imagination that updates are coming out more frequently-they really are!
