How To Stop Windows Updates from Causing PC Crashes?


It is a fact that Windows updates hardly creates issues. There is a lot of difference between hardly and never. Mostly everyone is aware of the Patch Tuesday and it’s released every week. The computer-related issues always spoil our moods. There are some of the ways that can avoid you from facing such problems in your day to day life.


Here are 5 ways of preventing Windows Updates from causing problems

  1. Ensure backup

Don’t ever forget to back up your important information because as PC is a technical device it can damage any time. You should not entirely rely on it. Most of the people consider the data saved by them on their PC more precious than their device itself. If you are one of them, then it’s better to back up your information to be safe.

  • You can backup your essential items in free backup programs.
  1. Modify Windows Update Settings

This action will lead to preventing viruses from entering your system. In simple words, ensure that the updates do not get installed automatically. You can set the updates to get downloaded automatically, but for installation, permission shall be needed. Doing this will help you prevent your system from crashing.

  1. Plug In Your Device During Windows Updates

It is worth noting that your device should be plugged in at the time of Windows updates. And also try not to do Windows updates in bad weather conditions like at the time of thunderstorms. After all, these can cause power loss all of a sudden.

  • Note: If your battery gets exhausted during your device gets updated, then it can corrupt some of your significant data.
  1. Stop Using Antivirus Software For Some Time

Don’t use antivirus software during installing Windows updates because some of the times it creates problems at the time of installation.

  1. Install Only One Windows Update At One Single Time

Though it will take some extra time but always remember this will still save you from facing any type of long term problem.

  • Note: If you are confident enough regarding your Windows updates because it never makes you face any type of issues, then you definitely go for a collection of installation at one time. I have personally experienced it and that’s the reason behind me recommending this.

Hope the above-mentioned ways can help you prevent facing PC crash problems regarding your Windows updates.
