Hi all,

I would like to know if my PC will be faster after I upgrade it from sp1 to higher! And also I was told that the Microsoft Windows updates just make your machine go slower rather than helping it; shall I now yes/no download the security updates for Windows vista and the updates for windows vista?

I don't know it was like about 70 updates or so.

Please help

Thanx
Jay

Are you sure you posted in the correct forum?

Are you running XP or Vista. As Cryptodan said. There is no SP3 for Vista.

First. The only reference I see to an SP3 is for Office. While Office is a Microsoft program, it is separate from Vista and not really a part of Vista.

My suggestion is to at least download all those labeled as Security related.

Do not know the specs of your PC or the programs you have loaded, running, but the affect, if any, from the updates should be negligible.

Ok I'll do that but how do I know if I have things like 'Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Security Update for Windows Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008 x86 (KB979911)' and the likes; I don't know what all those things mean. Is it safe to say what I don't know I don't download?

Thanx for your patience!

Jay

Just for my clarification. Are you going to the Windows update site or are these being offered through Auto-updates. = You are getting a notice in the lower right hand of your screen.

To answer your question. The reason you are being offered the updates is because you have the base program\software on your PC. Example. You already have Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 installed. Windows Update see`s it. Since it was initially released Microsoft has found ways of improving it`s function and to stop\prevent any security flaws from being exploited. The same thing can be said more or less about Vista SP1, or anything else that you listed.

Feel free to ask any questions you have. We will do our best to answer them to your satisfaction. That is why BC is here. :thumbup2:

Hi guys,

you know why I was all reluctant to update?, in the shop where I bought my laptop I was told automatic updates just slows your PC down more than anything else!
So I knew I had to ask here first before writing off automatic updates. So for now I'll go ahead with the critical/security updates.
I'll try to Relax and enjoy it audioAl!
Thanx for the advise Cryptodan and Thunderz

Any last thoughts on what else needs to be updated from the list??

Cheers
Jay
