I bought this computer in June. I know this, because my “Updates” area told me the last updates I downloaded were done at this time.. After that, other computers in the house did automatic updates, but the new one did not and I couldn’t figure out how to manually do them. I thought I had selected “automatic updates” in my start up stuff, but I couldn’t remember. (RULE: write things down!) I did find the area to “check for updates” but when I checked it , the circle icon just rolled and rolled round and nothing happened. Last night, I was shutting down to go to bed. There were 3 choices in the shutdown area. One said: SHUT DOWN, the other said RESTART, and the last said RESTART and UPDATE. For some reason I never noticed this. I did “Restart and Update and my backed up updates started flowing in! There were 62 of them! Another hour later I did the same thing and it found 42 more. Sunday morning I had 9 more. I’ll have to go back to Best Buy and sheepishly tell the nice salesman that I found the error. I was ready to take the thing back and turn it in for help.
