What version of windows are you asking about (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10)?
Is your computer a 32 bit or 64 bit machine?

hmmm actually are there people that don't update windows?
but what do you mean? Updates provided by Microsoft?
UPGRADE from different version to another? like from windows 7 to 8 or 8.1 ?
I am very proud to be a part of this generous, nice and friendly community!
but please, don't go around telling people that their work is somehow off! thats not how critique works!

There are people, schools and organizations that don’t update windows. This can be due to compatibility reasons, to prevent computer slowdown, prevent downtime, reduce maintenance requirements, etc. Are there security risks, sure. But updates can gradually make older computers obsolete as updates usually have higher spec requirements. I have had PCs, laptops and phones become paper weights after updates (though at least with a PC you can easily upgrade the hardware too, the phone I had to root to go back to an older version). Also, organizations may have an alternative security measure. Some machines, for instance, have restore points and erase all data on restart (might be advantageous for shared computers like in cyber cafes, schools, airports, etc.).

Why did you ask anyway?
