Popular Computer Questions-Microsoft Update

What does Microsoft Update do?

Microsoft Update offers an efficient, easy way to keep Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and other Microsoft programs current. When you visit the Microsoft Update Web site, it analyzes your system for what it needs and tailors its recommendations to the Microsoft software installed on your PC. These include:

High-priority updates that are critical to the security of your computer—for example, boosters for system security and reliability or the latest protection against spam for those who use Microsoft Outlook. Without these security updates, your computer may be more vulnerable to attack from cyber crooks and malicious software.
Optional updates that help keep your computer running smoothly or simply make using it more fun with, for example, the latest versions of Windows Media Player or Windows MovieMaker.

Microsoft Update supports Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3) or later, and Windows Server 2003. It provides updates for Microsoft Office XP, Office 2003, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft Exchange Server. Updates for more Microsoft programs will be added in the future.
