Windows Update checks for new updates at the time you specify.

If you're computer is off when that time rolls around, it will check as soon as you turn it back on.

I think that you made a wise choice when it comes to install yourself. Allow me to give you some unasked for advice.

Sometimes, after the update you are asked if the download should reboot the computer. I said yes, once. Well I had to force a shutdown after a freeze. I do not know if the update caused the problem, but now I always say now and restart, myself.

Once a month, you will get several updates. Dont install all at once, do only one or two at a time. This avoids many problmes that I have seen posted and in addition, if an update causes a problem, you will know which one to unistall.

Go to search. Type windows update. Then change settings. Mine is set every day at 3. So it is at 3 not at boot etc.

That is the time. It says that it installed at one time and a few minutes later itchecked.

It does not check at every boot. If I can find the schedule I will post.

Give me a while, I will try to find out what kind of schedule the updater is on. It is about once a day. Mine is anyway.
