Microsoft offers timely updates for their products which can be downloaded at their or the device manufacturer’s websites. These Updates helps keep your system up-to-date and safe from viruses, malwares and attacks. So it is recommended that you frequently check for and perform the updates available for your devices and drivers to keep away any Microsoft issues on your computer.
Updating Windows is an easy and harmless job in general. However, at times, when you do the Windows updates, it is possible that these may install improperly or may conflict with a software application that is already installed on your system. Some other times, the patch may be itself flawed. These Microsoft issues related to a patch or update can cause undesired behavior in Windows regardless of the reason and possibly cause the operating system to work incorrectly or not at all. These Microsoft problems can be fixed by reverting your computer back to a time before the update or patch was installed.
