Change how Windows installs or notifies you of updates

http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/change-how-Windows-installs-or-notifies-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.

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.

    Hello

    1. how disable you the Windows updates?

    2 may I know the reason for deactivation of the Windows updates?

    Please note: Windows updates provide significant benefits, such as improved security and reliability that is why it is not recommended to disable Windows updates?

    That you have disabled the Windows Server Update Service, SelfUpdate ceased.

    When you try to use the service SelfUpdate of Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to send automatic updates on the client computers, client computers do not receive updates. In addition, client computers do not report to the WSUS server.

  • How can I disable AutoScroll frustrating in Windows 7?

    How can I disable AutoScroll frustrating in Windows 7?  Whenever I try to type, or even move the pointer - the scroll bar active!

    From this study, it seems that the touchpad is extremely sensitive.

    Laptops also used to have built in the scroll bars on the bottom and the right side of the touchpads.  I have not seen one in a while and don't know if they start this new practice.

    If you are talking about just the cursor (arrow) on the screen by moving when you press the mouse button (which is integrated in the touchpad) the only real solution is component to the bottom of the sensitivity of the touchpad via Control Panel and learn to control the touchpad without accidental clicks.  I have a wireless entertainment 7000 microsoft keyboard that has sensitive functions of touch as a touchpad, and it may have a bit of a learning curve if you're used to buttons.  Not be your fingers anywhere which is touch sensitive with release of trigger.

    I suggest to get a USB mouse in option (they can be picked up cheap at any retailer important) because they offer better control everything by being better for you ergonomic that are the standard touchpads.
