I've noticed with people who've slacked on updating their windows machines (laptops and desktops) and they ask me to help them fix something on their computer.....the first thing I do start updating. I'm talking about 6 months or more of no updates, lol. What I've noticed is that these so called abused computers seem to have one thing in common, they over heat. Some of them actually overheat and shut off many times before successfully updating. I don't seem to have this problem with mine. Any one have any experiences?
