“Essential Precautions Recommended by CIT Before Running Updates”
- Saving your work.
- Connecting to a power supply (not running on battery power).
- Not turning off the computer until the updates finish.
- Setting aside at least a half hour to do the updates. Not all updates will take this long to install, but some updates are quite large.
- Installing updates within a week of notification. If it is not convenient to install updates when the alert appears, click Remind Later, but do not put it off forever.
