My computer is asking for updates?
Which are OK to do?
If you are bombarded by pop ups and hesitant to download anything for fear of an incoming virus, these are updates that are OK to download:
Microsoft Windows Updates – they provide your computer with patches, hot fixes and solutions to common Windows issues.
Adobe Reader – so that you can download PDF (portable document format) text files typically found on the Web.
Java– many multimedia type programs use this technology.
Flash Player – needed to access multimedia programs such as YouTube.
Shockwave player– to view interactive web related content.
NOTE: These are all free…..as you download them ….watch each screen and “uncheck” any toolbars or unnecessary additional programs it may want to download….unless you really want them.
