Chapter 15. Giving Windows a Tune-Up > Updating Windows Yourself

Updating Windows Yourself

If you don't want Windows to do any updating or file-retrieval automatically in preparation for an update, you can request that Windows XP not update itself until you take the action that directs Windows to locate updates that might be needed.

If you select the third option of the Automatic Updates dialog box, as you could have done at the end of the previous steps, Windows waits until you select the Start menu's Windows Update option. Until then, Windows will not update your computer or download updates until you request them.
