Phrase "goes looking to install"

Step 4: Search for all needed Windows patches.IT security administrators who responded to our query said they just assume there are old security flaws lurking on new machines, so one of the first actions they take is to run Windows Update to search whatever patches the machine needs.Atlanta-based security practitioner Ariel Silverstone, a regular columnist at CSOonline, notes that he goes looking to install “180 Microsoft patches.”

What is meant by the phrase ‘ go looking to’ in this context,please?

Hi Ksquo,

‘Go looking to do something’ suggests ‘thinking about doing something/planning to do something.’


Thank you very much,Alan!
