5. Why are software updates so important? Be sure to include security fixes, bugs, adaptation to new hardware availability and other plugin options. Software updates are important because they solve problems with the software. Sometimes there can be security holes in the software and an update can plug the holes to keep unwanted personal information getting into other people’s hands. Also, there are software’s that need regular updates, like an antivirus software. The reason they update so often is to fix software bugs because no virus is the same and they attack the system in different ways. Also, software updates remove outdated features and add new features that adapt to new hardware and other plugins. 6. Give an example of a typical software update that you perform or that your computer provides for you. Be detailed in what software is being updated and whether it is automatic or if you are required to provide a disk or file. A typical software update that my computer provides is an update for my operating system OS X Yosemite. The software update is an automatic update. The most recent update provided me with improvements with compatibility with certain email servers, it fixed an issue in photos application, and it also fixed an issue in QuickTime player. 7. Insert 2 screenshots of a Windows screen, showing menus, toolbars, Windows, Folders, sub- folders, directories, subdirectories, and views. Change the view between the two screenshots. You can use PrintScreen (see the PrtSc key on your keyboard) or the Snipping Tool to take a picture of your screen and attach it. Insert here: For some reason my windows computer is not allowing me to screenshot. If there is any way I can make up for the points taken off please let me know.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
