Good evening,
I use Win XP and i've always had my Win update to automaticaly download and update itself, but became fraustrated with it doing its stuff at the wrong times and without letting me know. Also, it would be very intermitent.
I've switched to manual, so the question i put to you is:
How often should i visit Win update and do i need to download all updates?


Thanks

Once a week for me. It's up to you really. Check here - somebody usually posts if there is a really important one.

I check once a week...

Or if there is something on here that catches my attention i'll take another look.

You don't need to download all the update. I have 5 updates (which are not critical) that i could download, i choose not to because i have no reason to use them or any programs on my computer that would benfit from them.

P.S. These files are sometimes huge, does it replace itself or does it all mount up?
