Applying software updates is one of the most important things you can do with your computer.In fact, if you don’t do it, you’re very likely going to get some kind of malware in your system and even get hijacked.A ‘bug’ refers to unintended mistakes done by the programmer which causes the program to give unexpected results and errors.Whenever new bugs are found and reported, developers develop fixes and offer them as a part of the software update.A "software update" updates your existing version of the program to the current version, but does not upgrade it to the next major version.

The term ‘software update’ is often confused with the term ‘software upgrade’.Though both the terms sound similar, there is a huge difference.What do you do when you see those little icons and pop-up messages that appear in the system tray, indicating there is a new software update available for you to download and install?Most people find such notifications and the process of installing new software updates insignificant and disrupting.

These updates are installed over the current installation and do not require uninstallation or re-installation of the software in question.

In simple words, when you need to update a program, you don’t need to do anything other than let the updater do its thing.
