Windows update is a Microsoft Windows service. Windows operating systems 7,8 and 10 periodically checks for updates so we don’t need to check manually.
When an update is available, it is automatically downloaded and installed on our system to keep it up to date with the latest features.
Microsoft Windows update provides the fully compatible updates for your computer’s operating system, software, and hardware.
Normally windows update improves the functionality of your system, software and security but sometimes it slows down the system.
By turning off or selecting the ‘Never check for updates (not recommended)’ within the Windows update settings from the control panel, the windows update problem can never be solved permanently.
