Question of the Week
Question:  "Ever since I upgraded my computer to Windows 10, it seems like there are Windows Updates all the time.  I don't remember that happening with Windows 7.  What's going on?"

Answer:  For many, many years, Microsoft would release updates on the second Tuesday of the month.  Normally, the only exception to this would be if there was an "emergency" update created to fix some immediate threat. These emergency updates were then pushed out as soon as they were ready.

Microsoft had gone to the once-a-month update schedule in response to IT personnel who watch over hundreds, sometimes thousands, of computers and performing updates was a real chore.  Home users, if they chose, could delay the updates but that was usually not a good idea.  

With the advent of Windows 10, however, the way updates are sent out from Microsoft has changed.  Now, Windows Updates will be pushed out to computers whenever they are needed.  This means you could have updates for Windows 10 multiple times during the month.  Another change is that home users no longer have a choice - Windows 10 is going to update, period. Microsoft's reasoning behind this is that many people would ignore updates thus putting their computers at risk and often allowing them to become part of a botnet.
