Regularly update the operating system very much.It is important: it helps to protect yourself from vulnerabilities and maintain its stable operation. But it happens that Windows is not updated. There can be many reasons for this. In this article, we'll try to tell you about the most common ones, but first we recommend you to make sure that you have installed updates at all. For information on how to do this, see how to update Windows.
Why is not Windows updated?
Upgrading Windows XP
For a start about the simplest: if you have Windows XP, you can not wait for updates. Microsoft ceased to support this operating system in April 2014 and since then has not released any corrections for it. Only the databases in the antivirus application Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows XP are updated, but in July 2015 this will also stop.
Updating the pirated version
Another simple answer to the question "why is Windowsnot updated ": you have a pirated version of the operating system. Since you did not pay Microsoft for the license, it removes the obligation on the part of the company to provide you with updates. However, for you it is in some ways even good: there are cases when users still try to install updates on the hacked Windows and they "flies activation" - Microsoft servers recognize the pirated system and block it.
Sometimes installing updates in Windows canblock malware. To make sure that your computer is not infected, check it with a reliable antivirus. You can, for example, use the built-in Windows utility. To do this, press the [Windows (with flag)] + [R] keys, type "mrt.exe" in the "Run" window without quotes and click "OK". And you can download a free Dr.Web CureIt utility from the Dr.Web site.
Problems with Update Center
If the first three reasons do not concern you,time to think about the problem. Perhaps the answer to the question "why is not updated Windows 7" is hidden in the settings of the Center for Automatic Updates. To fix the problem, download the Fix it utility from the official Microsoft website and run it. Nothing complicated to do is necessary - just accept the license terms, and then click the "Next" button and follow the wizard's instructions. The utility itself will try to correct all errors. After its operation is complete, find the Update Center in the Start menu and run the second check and install the updates.
