Why does windows explorer keep updating itself
Update, May 15: With the Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft has largely addressed the forced updates that often resulted in lost work.
And, while the the recent Wanna Cry ransomware does not (thus far) appear to affect Windows 10, you need to make sure your PC is kept up-to-date with security patches to avoid exactly those sort of attacks.
To that end, consider the information below to be out of date, with a more thorough update to come.
As a general rule, an up-to-date operating system is a secure operating system, and some people are terrible at updating their operating systems.
Thanks to our reader "Martin" who contacted us and shared the fact that Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 8 operating system which allows automatic upgrade to Windows 8.1.
Once this update is installed, the Windows 8 computer is automatically updated to Windows 8.1 OS.
Although Windows 8.1 is an improved version of Windows 8 and contains many new features and fixes but there are many people who don't want to upgrade to Windows 8.1.
Hello, I'm having some troubles with my wireless laptop!It either won't load up and says internet explorer is experiencing problems or it shuts down all the time.I've found it tends to shut down when I try to close pop up adverts or watch things online.It was an automatic and forced upgrade to Windows 8.1.They didn't realize that their computer is being upgraded to Windows 8.1 and once the process finished, they were having Windows 8.1 operating system in their computer which they never wanted to install.
