Your answer is fine. I feel that all these extra windows update do hog up the running and perfomance of the machine especially with XP.
I thihk the Auto updating on big brand name machines that is swithced on when delivered is a big mistake as it doesn't have slow things down in ways.
But as I just said above, all these updates & security patches look to me a little like overkill.
Any Microsoft MCSE engineer's out there trained on XP Home ?. Are the Windows updates really really necesary.
Ok, admit there is/was a Blaster patch but its been and gone.
