Why operating systems need updating
What do you do when you see those little icons and pop-up messages that appear in the system tray, indicating there is a new software update available for you to download and install?
Most people find such notifications and the process of installing new software updates insignificant and disrupting.
If you’ve been humming along just fine with an old OS despite the arrival of Mountain Lion for Macs this summer or Windows 8 for PCs this fall, you may feel like an upgrade is pointless.
But at some point, the age of your computer’s operating system is going to start blocking you off from the rest of the world.
However, that notification is not there just to pester us.
Make sure to enable automatic updates whenever possible.
Your computer warns you regularly: software update available.
This way, any new repairs or patches will be fixed and you can go about your business. Both Google and Mozilla automatically update their browsers, so you don’t have to do anything manually if you use either of these options.
We all get them from time to time- those little windows that pop up, notifying us that there are software updates available for our computer.Your files and programs won’t be compatible with what they’re using at the office anymore.
