    Exclamation Don't Use Windows Update anymore!

    I came across this read.

    Don't use Windowsupdate.microsoft.com but use update.microsoft.com only. Don't use windowsupdate.microsoft.com even if you don't have Microsoft Office products installed



    Why? Simple reason: You are not protected with security patches if you are only using windowsupdate.microsoft.com.
    You are protected with security patches if you will use update.microsoft.com

    With windowsupdate.microsoft.com, you will get updates for Windows and components in Windows that is shipped in Windows DVD or your installer (ISO file that you've burn into DVD) but you are not going to receive security updates or important updates for Microsoft related software that was not shipped in Windows installer.

    Thanks for this, but I had already changed sometime ago and I think the change is automatic because I can not recall having to do so manually.

    This really only applies to Windows XP users. In Vista and Windows 7 you ust have to activate updates for additional content.
