I already have "Computer" and "Danial" (My documents folder) in my Stardock, so is it ok if i just delete them? including the 4 thumbnail album covers?

I ask because a few years back, as I sent my HP laptop for repairs, the representative that was attending to me, told me that NOT updating with the Windows Updates was a better thing to do. I never really did much reasearch on what she said, but I kind of took her words, verbatim.

MS does not release updates to break computers, they are system and security fixes. Failure to install the updates will render the system insecure and in some of the more severe instances unstable
So I highly recommend that all updates are installed when available, it is what I do and I never have any problems

Anyways, I've update my Windows Updates (Last update was December of 2010), and there seems to be no further problems.
There is an optional update for "Microsoft Security Essentials" in the Windows Update pane. Should I go ahead and install this optional update?

One final query, is this "Live Security Platinum" a brand new virus? Is that why it so easily infected my computer?
