Team blog product Microsoft Update: Windows Update and restarting automatic

Change how Windows installs or informs you about updates>

If you select the download updates but let me choose... option, no update will install without your approval. Suppose an update will require a reboot and does not approve the installation of an update until & unless you are ready to restart.

You can change the setting "notify only". Once you have done this, you will need to approve the updates are downloaded updates are installed commandeLorsque, which they are installed.

I prefer "Notify only" setting.

When they are installed.

What are the differences between Windows updates and automatic updates from Microsoft Updates?

While Windows Update provides updates specifically for Windows, Microsoft Update expands the service to download and install updates for other Microsoft software, such as Microsoft Office and Windows Live [as well as Silverlight & Microsoft Security Essentials]. Update automatic is a feature that allows you to configure your PC to automatically download and install updates using each service, making it easy and convenient for you to keep your current Windows PC.


If you disable Microsoft Update, your default update source is "reversed" update of Windows, but it does NOT neutralize automatic updates.

    Hi Derek,.

    Thanks to join Microsoft Community where you will find all necessary information about the Windows operating systems.

    You cannot perform backup and get error the system cannot find the specified file (0 x 80070002).

    The problem may occur if there is some disk errors hard or due to the interruption by third-party programs.

    To check if the problem is due to hard drive errors or due to the interruption by third-party programs, I suggest you follow the steps:

    After each step, if the problem persists, go to the other.

    Method 1: Check the hard disk for errors


    See the site:

    Check your hard drive for errors


    Note:  When checking a disk for errors, if bad sectors si des secteurs defectueux sont are found then the system tries to repair sector. All data may be lost. So make a backup of the data.


    Method 2: Clean boot


    When the computer starts to boot, programs non-Microsoft will not be started and would avoid any interruption of their share.

    See the mentioned site:

    How to perform a clean boot for a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

    Note: once you are done with the boot, follow step 3 of section to set your computer to normal startup.

    Note: If in case, you are connected via a connection wireless, and then when you start the System Configuration utility to perform the clean boot, click Startup and Services tab one time and check wireless see corresponding section are checked (enabled).


    I hope this helps. If the problem persists, or if you have problems of Windows in the future, let us know and we would be happy to help you.

  • How can I change the Apple ID for updating applications on Mac?

    So I got this Mac at the time, but now my mother to use it now. She got a user of his and my user is sitting here, I use it frequently.
    The problem is each time an update is needed, the computer asks my Apple ID and not my mother. How can I do so that she can use his Apple ID to update the applications (and possible updates OS as well)? I mean by "applications" pre-installed software Apple, like Safari and whatnot.

    You can not. If you need this Mac to be registered with your mother, you will need to erase the HARD drive and start over. You will need to put in place using his Apple ID. And then, she will need to buy a software it wants from the Mac App Store with its own Apple ID.
