RS: Well, there are a bunch of different ways you can go about it.The easiest way is to have a piece of software which scans your machine and says “Hey, this software is outdated.” That is one of the approaches we take.Within hours, my i Pad became sluggish, by the evening I could no longer text, I would tap an app, & the icon would turn grey. My love affair with my i Pad continues, even if it’s not up to snuff.I contacted Apple Support, I was out of warranty, but since the problem occurred after my upload, a genius would help me, & help he did, telling me Apple stood behind their software for 30 days, so if I needed help again, it must be within the 30 day time frame, or I would be charged a service charge.

But [generally], if you want to go after everything as an inexperienced person you’re probably best off to have a piece of software tell you, “Hey you, this is important--you need to update this.” CD: So if people use security software to help, would those updates happen in the background when they’re sleeping or otherwise not using their computer?
