Windows Update is a service provided by Microsoft that provides updates for the Windows operating system and installed components. It can be expanded to provide support for other Microsoft software and is then referred to as “Microsoft Update”.

The system can be configured either directly or using Group Policy, and updates can be obtained directly from Microsoft over an internet connection or from a Windows Software Update (WSUS) Server installed on the intranet.
