Windows updates are killing me! Last night, I wanted to do something “real quick”. I wake up my computer only to see “79% complete” on the update screen. That fine…i’ll wait it out. So I waited, and waited. When it finally finished and the computer rebooted, Windows updates caused me a whole lot of pain. Slowness, new features I didn’t have time to learn, and Microsoft Edge was my primary browser. I could hardly load Chrome, which I prefer to use. I know it sounds dramatic, but I can honestly tell you it was agonizing. Thanks but no thanks.

Windows Updates

It’s important to install Windows updates, or to have them automatically install. They mostly include security updates, which are the worst possible errors. You certainly don’t want to be exploited by malware or hackers. These types of situations are regularly identified in various parts of Windows, like ActiveX, Internet Explorer and .Net Framework. Other updates address bugs and issues to the operating system.

I know Windows updates are a good thing. A really good thing, but sometimes they wreak havoc on my system. Still, we need to stay proactive and update patches as soon as possible. Attackers like to stay a step ahead of you and Microsoft, so the sooner you can rush to install your Windows updates and patches, you should.

I guess the moral of the story is that even though the Windows updates are a pain and inconvenient, they are a necessary evil that I need to learn how to appreciate!


Just my 2 cents.
