Install only required updates
If you need some help deciding what to install and what not to, read the descriptions for each update. If the update is not defined as ‘High Priority’, you can choose not to install them. If you read the description of the update and it looks like it applies to you or you would like to access the specific feature addressed, you can add and install it.
You can update your Toshiba Satellite T100 automatically by enabling the Automatic Updates option from the Control Panel. If you turn on Automatic Updates, you need not remember to check for updates yourself. Windows will check for new updates whenever you are connected to the Internet and install them using your Automatic Updates settings. If you are getting an update, click Details in the Automatic Updates dialog box to see what the update involves.
For manual updates, you will have to go to the Windows Update from the Control Panel in the left pane, click ‘Check for Updates’. Before installing the updates, you can review and select from the available updates. If you do not use Automatic Updates, you need to check for updates at least once a week. If you are getting the updates manually from the Windows Update website, the description of the update will be given on the website.
Give preference to security updates while checking for updates. You will come across some rather interesting and unexpected items from the Windows Update such as the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. Once downloaded, this application runs to check your system for malicious software. It also runs a check for well known viruses and spyware and tries to remove anything malicious it finds. A new version is available each month, providing a sort of antivirus program that you could use to keep your Toshiba Satellite T100.
