Microsoft wants to force everyone to pay for new updates

I keep wondering why Microsoft is recommending new updates to everyone using Windows computer, since the global malware shocked more than 100 countries in the world recently, Microsoft should be suspected for this malware problem.

That is quite ridiculous! First of all, Microsoft don't charge for updates and second, the updates are necessary and designed to protect against new malware, not to facilitate it!

@shynu44 Upgrades (that is, upgrading to a new operating system) cost money simply because it costs Microsoft a great deal of money to make a new operating system and to support it with updates. There are a number of reasons why people don't immediately buy the new upgrades. Most often it is because SysAdmins of large organisations are unwilling to move to a new system immediately because upgrading hundreds of computers on a network is no simple task and there are more often than not incompatibilities with existing systems which nobody (least of all Microsoft) can predict. The actual cost of the new licences is usually only a relatively minor consideration.

@owlwings , that means microsoft migth be behind the malware problem all over the globe, they might have paid an hacker or programmer for it.

Its still the money they are thinking, they never contended with what they have. They should be the one who offers protection of their buyers
