Not every critical update may be for your particular example of XP - the three latest ones, for instance, included one that was for server versions.

Read the information about each update first and then decide.

But critical updates are normally issued for good reasons.

You should have antivirus and firewall programs as a matter of course, not forgetting such utilities as AdAware6, SpywareBlaster and Search and Destroy 1.2

To save downloading you'll usually find one of two of these on cover disks.
