What is the Microsoft Update service?

Microsoft Update is a service from Microsoft that delivers updates for Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and other Microsoft programs.

If you use Microsoft Update, you no longer need to go to different Web sites to get the latest updates for supported Microsoft software. For more information about which products are supported, see the Microsoft Update Web site.

 Note   If you use Microsoft Office 2000 or earlier, you can still get updates from Microsoft Office Downloads.

Updates often include downloads that can help to keep your computer secure.

  • I don't want to use Microsoft Update     Click this option if you don't want to get updates. Your currently-configured settings for getting updates remain unchanged. By choosing not to get the updates, you can miss getting the downloads that can help to keep your computer more secure.
