Windows® Update page not loading issue
What may be the problems behind Windows Update page not loading? Provide tips to resolve the issue.
Majority of the new computers come preinstalled with Windows based operating systems. Windows based Operating Systems are preferred over other Operating Systems for many reasons. They are not only simple to use but also very light on system resources which means that with Windows OS, users would be able to get more out of the system. Windows Operating Systems can be also updated. Updating the OS would remove all bugs within the Operating System and make the OS more stable. Updates would also remove any security loopholes within the OS and make it less vulnerable to attacks. Windows OS installed on your computer can be updated with the automatic update tool or by visiting the update web page of Microsoft and then downloading and installing the necessary updates. Some Windows users might face Windows Update page not loading issue. Such problems are usually because of reasons such as malware infections within the system, problems with the network connection in use, issues with the browser being used to load the web pages and so on.
