Micro Trend Housecalls has shown me that I have 40 different vulnerabilities. I have not up-dated windows to Service Pack 2 or beyond. I can't get the Windows Up-date page. I have Service Pack 2 on a CD. My question is - should I do all my up-dates first or go to the vulnerabilities pages and download the patches on each vulnerability one at a time.

When you say it shows that you have vulnerabilities, do you mean it shows you have viruses?

I am new here, what is the difference with the 'quick reply' and the 'add reply'? House calls says I have vulnerabilities, not viruses. When Windows Update page does the search for what I need, then the screen says it can't load the page because of an error.
