Yet everything I read here says to keep the security updates Up to Date.
He has repeatedly had issues with his computer shortly after using the Windows Update feature, does does not use it any longer. On more than one occaision he had to reformat after such updates in order to correct the problems he was encountering.
I have just reinstalled Windows XP SP1 after refoprmating my system. Most of the recommendations on this site about fighting MaleWare etc, suggests that downloading XP SP2 will help defend your system against such intrusions, I want to be protected. Have you heard of users having computer troubles after downloading the undates from MSC's website? If so what precautions can one take when downloading the updates?
Can I go straight from XP SP1 to SP2? or do I have to dowload all of the updates in between?
Thanks for you help on this issue.
