I have a Lenovo G780 laptop. I'm trying to get updates for Windows 8 and keep getting the message "windows is out of date". My laptop is not a year old yet. It is showing that it's 'critical' to update windows but I cannot get any information on how to resolve the 'out of date' message. Do I need to purchase a new Windows 8 program since this one was factory installed? I'm a neophyte when it comes to computers.

do you mean "windows defender is out of date" or really "windows is out of date" ? sorry, have to ask. – Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Sep 18 '13 at 18:12
