Question about windows updates?

  Ive 18:20 22 Sep 2004

Just got a new pc running xp home sp2 and on going to windows update it says there are 20 critical updates that are needed.Should I install all of them. There are also 2 optional hardware updates for my (tft screen) and my (nvidia geforce fx 5200) but they are dated from 15 april 2003 and 6 october 2003. Should I install these 2 considering the dates and that my machine is new. (Machine is Tiny home 3200 intel celeron D processor 320)

are you sure that you have SP2 installed? go to add / remove programs, and check, or in "system tools" click on system information and check what it says...................

Install critical updates.

I forgot to mention that I also have just received XP service pack 2 CD from microsoft which I ordered for my last machine before I brought this new one. Do I dare use it or should I ask tech support for the new machine.

To be on the safe side ask tech support - especially if it is a Mesh.
