Guide to Installing Security Updates to Prevent Security Problems

Security Updates in WindowsYou can't get away from security updates if you're running any operating system, software or firmware. These on-going updates are part of the product support supplied by software or hardware vendors. Depending on the product license or lifecycle support, updates may be discontinued which means an upgrade is needed. Some program updates will install another feature or third-party program that can cause problems in Windows or Mac.

Before installing, it's helpful to learn how a product or security update will affect your computer or devices. Here at Bright Hub, you'll find guides, tips and useful information on how to install updates or fix computer problems caused by a program or system update. You'll also see product reviews on programs that are widely-used to help you decide whether to update, upgrade or not.
