advice on updating Win 7
Please advise Oh-jeez
A few months ago I turned off the automatic updates on both our machines at home. I now realize that I should probably not have done that. Any suggestions as to how to choose which updates to install??

RE: advice on updating Win 7
Change your update settings to, to paraphrase "Let me decide." You can then select the individual updates you'd like to receive. Unless you mean "Which specific updates do I select?"

On the plus, you've probably avoided Microsoft's naughty insistence that you update to Windows 10 this way. Wink

That may be a task...lol

RE: advice on updating Win 7
I have only been applying the updates marked as "Security Update for..."
I don't download any update, even so called important ones, that don't say "security."

You might go to Steve Gibson's site and get "never 10". It writes a registry key and a group policy to tell the machine not to update to Win10.

There is also Spybot Anti-Beacon which is supposed to stop any phone home updates from sending info the MSoft.

You might review this thread were we were talking about stopping Win10

RE: advice on updating Win 7
I updated all my laptops and desktop machines to windows 10, and they all became a bit faster and mostly worked better except for some touchpad functions on one laptop. If the upgrade comes up that doesn't require a payment, take it. New laptops with touch screens and windows 10 are amazing and cheap. You will never miss the old one.

Please excuse a silly question from someone who is technically challenged, but how do you change the update settings? So far I've managed to avoid changing to Windows 10. The people that I know that have changed from Windows 7 to Windows 10 like it. But they are people who are much, much better with computers than I am.

RE: advice on updating Win 7
GrammaBear,
Go to:
  1. Start->Control Panel->System and Security->Windows Update
  2. Locate the option on the left side labeled: "Change Settings"
  3. Select the options you desire.
