Part: VII Appendixes > Installing via Windows Update

Installing via Windows Update

If you have a single computer to update, you can use Windows Update. The procedure is as follows:

1.
Log on as a Computer Administrator and close any running applications.

2.
Check to see whether the Express Updates icon appears in the Notification Area on the task bar. If it does, double-click it and ask to view the update details. If SP2 is listed, the files are already downloaded and all you have to do is let Windows complete the installation by following the procedure in the previous section.

3.
Open Internet Explorer and visit windowsupdate.microsoft.com. You might be asked to install the latest version of the Windows update software. If a pop-up appears asking you to do this, click Yes.

4.
Select a custom install. From the list of available critical updates, select Service Pack 2 Express Install. Windows downloads the service pack installer and components.
