We require that all Windows machines connected to our network remain up-to-date with all current Microsoft security patches. The easiest way to do this is to set updates to happen automatically, though even then, it is important to be mindful of your machine, and make sure updates are indeed being installed.

For more information about checking for and installing updates, as well as setting automatic updates, for  your particular version of Windows, see Microsoft support help for current information.
