Click "Start," "All Program" "Windows Update."
Alternatively, you can click the "Start" orb and type Windows Update in the instant search box.

Windows Update appears in the list for you to choose.
Click "Check for updates;" it is located on the left hand-side of the open window.

Windows 7 begins checking for updates.
They are categorized as important and optional.
Click the "Important Update" link and choose all that apply.

Once you are finished choosing your important updates, click "OK."
Click the "Optional Update" link and choose all that apply.

Once you are finished choosing your important updates, click "OK."
Click "Install updates."

Windows 7 downloads your updates and installs them.

Windows is more up to date than th one tryng to download,I need to cancel this but do not know how to find it


. First of all click the Start button to view the Start Menu. Then choose the Control Panel option.
2. The Control Panel window opens up now.
Click the System and Security link from the Control Panel window.
Important updates provide significant benefits, such as improved security and reliability. Recommended updates can address non-critical problems and help enhance your computing experience. Optional updates are not downloaded or installed automatically.

6. Important Updates can be configured in four ways:

  • Install updates automatically (recommended)
  • Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
  • Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
  • Never check for updates (not recommended)
If you choose Install updates automatically , there are additional options to schedule the update at a convenient time.

3. The System and Security section of Control Panel opens up. Here you can see the Windows Update link.
As you can see in the above screenshot there is direct links to the important Windows Update option here it self in slightly small fonts, such as Turn automatic updating on or off, Check for updates, View install updates . You may choose the required option directly from here. But we are going ahead to the dedicated Windows Updates section of the Windows 7 control panel by clicking the main Windows update link.

4. So now we are at the Windows Update section of our Window 7 Control panel. You can manually look up for any new updates by clicking the Check for updates button under the heading Check for updates for your computer fromthis window. In order to modify the Windows update option click theChange settings in the left pane.
5. Here you may change the way Windows 7 download and install updates. Configurable option include Important Updates , Recommended updates ,Who can install updates and Featured update notifications .
or if Never check for updates is selected:

How to remove windows genuine message in windows 7


If your Windows 7 was working fine and you suddenly start receiving messages saying this copy of Windows is not genuine - for Windows 7, chances are that you must have installed the Windows 7 update KB971033. This Windows 7 update scans for more than 70 activation bypasses to detect if your copy of Windows 7 is genuine or not. If it finds even a single activation bypass, you are in a mess
Steps to resolve problem you can:
1. If you are getting nag screens and are not able to use/install programs because your Windows 7 thinks that the copy is not genuine, you can remove the Windows Genuine Advantage even on a legitimate copy of Windows 7. To remove KB971003, follow these steps:
> Open Control Panel > Select Programs and Features > Select Installed Updates > Look for list item "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB971033)" > Select the above item, if listed, and click Uninstall > Close the Programs and Features Windows after the update is removed
2 You can then proceed to remove Windows Genuine Advantage tool. Do the following to disable/remove the Windows genuine advantage:
> Open the Run dialog (Windows key + R), type regedit.exe and press enter key.
> Press F3 to open the Find dialog. Type WGALOGON in the Find Dialog
> Delete the folder WGALOGON.
> Close the registry editor and delete the file WgaTray from your system32 folder and from your 'dllcache' folder located inside the system32 folder.
> Reboot.
You may be prompted to install Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications, but this option can be deselected.
In order to prevent these files from being installed again, make sure your Windows Update in Control Panel is set to Notify but do not automatically download. This way, you can make sure that you are not downloading the same files again. Hope this information help you in resolving your issue. Have a great day and thanks for using fixya.

I need the update for Windows 7 for my Voice Editing. I bought a new computer and cannot use my old version.


If you need to update your Windows 7 then for the first thing the Windows 7 that you will be using should be genuine to avoid any further software problems. To turn on updates on Windows 7
  1. Right click on "Computer" and select properties of it.
  2. In the opening window on the left bottom select "Windows Update.
From there you can activate Windows update and your system will automatically download updates from Microsoft site as they are available.
