Hi Everyone -
Want to better understand updating behavior and what Microsoft is trying to do with Windows Update? We've created a whitepaper called Windows Update Explained, which provides information about how Windows Update works, including how to check for, download, and install updates. It also talks about reboots, the information Windows Update collects in order to operate, and security protections in Windows Update. And there's a little bit about WSUS, and pointers to how you can customize it, for all your IT Professionals out there.
