Windows Update

my pizza's soggy :(

i dunno erika. i know it's important to the operating system though
Actually, Internet Explorer isn't something your computer needs, per se. Unless, you are talking about the Windows Explorer, which I assume you aren't.

to update windows you need internet explorer, unless maybe a browser that's 99.9999% the same, and still then.... i know it's stupid but it's one of those silly tricks microsoft uses to make sure people even keep internet explorer

or as the website for windowsupdate says itself:

Thank you for your interest in obtaining updates from our site.

To use this site, you must be running Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or later.

To upgrade to the latest version of the browser, go to the Internet Explorer Downloads website.
Ok I have my security settings on my computer to update windows.. but i never see it when it updates like pc sillin :confused: soooooo yea..
I see security essentials
firewall on
automatic updates on
virus protection on

I'm just wondering why I don't see or am notified if I've been updated like pc sillin notifies me... yesterday that worm thing happened and I'm not running windows 2000 but i still would like ot know if I'm being updated
All those dealies are automatically on. Windows just turns 'em itself. If you want them off, which you shouldn't, it's up to you.

I think you're like a billion people in the world right now and freaking out about that worm dealy. You're fine...
Aww. Well, are you just trying to see if there are any updates that you need to do? If your automatic updates are turned on then you're fine. If you have an anti-virus you might run that but I'm sure it's okay or you would probably be having problems with it. :)

i dont know wether microsoft doesnt *want* to make good software or if they do it on purpose so computers can get fucked up and so that the cumputer safety bussiness can make not paranoid but the entire world IS one big conspiracy
