update or not update that is the question.

have windows Xp home and used to update regularly. Until 1 particular update made my machine funny. After a restore everything was ok and I tried the update again same probs. After restoring my machine it now works fine, I haven't updated since. However there would appear to be a divergence of opinion on whether upgrading is necessary or not. I run XP home have broadband and my comp is for home use only, occassionally I might shop. Kids sometimes go on to play games etc. I use Zonealarm AVG6 and have had no problems after not upgrading in about 6 months.I realise that this is subjective, but I would welcome opinions so that I can make a valued decision

I always get the critical updates and ignore the rest.

Don't seem to have any problem with this
