Microsoft has reported that the number of System Restarts that are required will be reduced after automatic updating in Windows 8. It has also been reported at the company’s side that Reboot Notifications will also be less invasive. Farzana Rahman, who is the group program manager of Windows Updates, has expressed the latest strategies of Microsoft in a new post on the company’s blog named Building Windows 8.
In case of Windows 7 users have to experience a number of Pop Up Notifications that instruct them to restart their system to complete installation. In some cases in spite of selecting the “remind me after 4 hours” the pop up notification appears almost within minutes. More over the in the previous procedure it was not possible to leave the system while an installation is going on because it that case the system would automatically carry on the action without approval. That was really unbearable, because while in use files were unable to update and therefore restarting the system became necessary.
Windows 8 is expected to remove all the problems and make the procedure easier. It will reduce the number of update restarts by merging them into a single release that is reported to come on every second Tuesday of every month. These changes will prevent the security of the system without any extra headache by just decreasing the multiple system update restarts to single restart every month.
When it will be the time for monthly update restart Windows 8 will show the notification on login screen rather than sending pop up notifications. Users will also get the time of three days to do the restart. If the user fails to commence the restart for some reason the system will automatically do it. There is another facility offered by the Windows 8. If the system finds that as a result of shutting down the machine some data can be lost it will deliver a message to save all the works and give 15 minutes for it.
