new to windows XP . first connection to internet today with new machine and when switching off message comes up do not switch off installing updates. is this a good thing or can I disable this function and do manual updates as and when required.

you can download them manually but best to install them as soon as possible as one of the latest is for internet explorer security

I agree, It will take a long time to download the lot in the first instance, but once it is up to date it will just add new patches as they are published.
