Windows8 Updates

It's happened to all of us at one time or another; you're halfway through some work when Windows Update informs you that it's about to restart your computer to install an update. Sure, you can delay it for fifteen minutes, but at the back of your mind you know you're going to have to stop what you're doing, close down your programs and restart. It's a pain.

But now Microsoft has made it easier to update without interrupting your work. In Windows 8 Windows Update or WU will happen once a month.

If you haven't restarted your machine within these three days, your computer will give you a standard 15 minute warning that it is about to restart. 

When it comes to restarting, you will notice that you now have new options: 'Update and restart' is shown 'immediately after the update occurs.  Isn't it cool?  I'm sure we can all cope with that.
