windows xp update

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I love this site, and would like to ask my questions here.

I keep using Windows XP sp1 because I wasn't satisfied with using the SP2
But I problem is that I don't really have a clue on which (automatic) updates I should get. When freshly installed windows XP sp1 I need to know which update are essential and which ones to ignore

thanks

yea , me to , i hate sp2 so i re-installed with my xp cd that came with my computer it was with sp1

al those updates that your computer just pop - up and said its finished do install , those are okey to download and install but do never ever go in on windows update manually because then you may have to pay them for your illegal version of windos if its that you wanna know

No because if you dont want SP2 then dont have automatic update on as it will down load and ask you to install SP2.

Oh and Triton i see where your coming from but calm down..This is a community of suggestions and ideas and help..I dont think people are ordering you to do things.

Ugh. I can only imagine wading through 200 patches.. LoL

If you count time as performance, you will waste more trying to figure out patches than just using SP2 and turning off firewall and auto-updates

Honestly I have had more problems with doing updates so I stopped, I know other who's hard drives have crashed on updates. It's not worth it unless its somthing totally critical.

But the SP2 thing, I got it before it came out and everything was fine but lately I installed it and it really sucked, maybe the RAID thing, who knows
