In order to keep devices secure and safe from malware such as ransomware, trojans, and keyloggers, Questar III has set Microsoft Windows Update policies to keep devices updated in a timely manner.
Microsoft generally releases new updates on Tuesdays (known as Patch Tuesday) but also can release updates as-needed depending on impact and severity of a particular vulnerability. Questar III Devices are configured to apply these updates within two days of release. Devices then have another two days to restart:
OR, users can defer the restart until the two days have elapsed, at which point the device will automatically update and/or restart, depending on whether the update requires a restart:
We encourage that all users restart their computers on a daily basis to prevent surprise restarts and keep your computer up-to-date.
