What You Can Do if Windows Updates are Too Slow

 

Windows Update is known as a relatively reliable way for installing updates for most Microsoft products. Normally, it can be done automatically with minimum intervention by user. However, the number of updates has grown, and as of now Windows 7 needs more than 200 updates to be installed.

We traditionally welcome the new mildly obtrusive offer from Microsoft. This time, of course, we are urged to upgrade to Windows 10. Not only are we urged, but rather Windows 10 makes broadband haste to our PCs, without much ado (or permission).
