    Windows Updates Off?

    dharmatma Rookie

      Good day everyone. If we turn off a computer's Automatic Windows update function, does this affect agent-based Shavlik ProtectCloud from loading any MS or Windows updates? Does that function have to be on or does it matter? In re: W7 and W8. Thanks.

          Hello,

           

          You can turn off the automatic updates function, but just make sure to leave the Windows Update service enabled. The service needs to be enabled so certain Microsoft patches can be installed, but the automatic updates functionality is not used by Shavlik.

           

          I hope that helps.
