Yesterday (Aug 9) was Microsoft Patch Tuesday or “Download Tuesday” for the month of August.
Keeping you computer software updated is always a good practice. Check for updates this week if you haven’t already done so.
More Info from Microsoft:
1. Microsoft update information
How to start updates manually:
2. start update: Start > All Programs > Windows Update
3. In Internet Explorer: “Tools” menu > Windows Update
Let updates run automatically:
4. Many (maybe even most) Windows computers are set to automatically check for updates at 3:00 AM in the morning. So, if you leave your computer running over night it will likely do some updates all by its self.
** Recommendation: One night a week, leave the library computer(s) running overnight to allow automatic updates to download and install.
If you do this for patron computers be sure to “unlock” Deepfreeze drive protection before leaving for the night. When you return the next day Restart the computer two (2) times to allow Windows to complete updates then “lock” Deepfreeze back down.
