I'm doing my Windows Updates for the month, and the only one I didn't update yet is:

Update for Windows XP (KB927891)
Download size: 1.2 MB , 3 minutes
This is a reliability update. This update resolves an issue in the Windows Installer (MSI) that can affect performance during software updates. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

In the past, I've seen it recommended here that it's not the best idea to install reliability updates unless you're actually having the issue described.

As far as I know, I'm not having that issue.

So should I just hide this?

Last time I hid this one:

Update for Windows XP (KB930916)
Typical download size: 307 KB , 2 minutes
This is a reliability update. Install this update to resolve an issue where a third-party driver installed on a computer that is running Windows XP may prevent you from opening files successfully on a NTFS file system volume. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.


...since I wasn't having that issue either.

Any thoughts? Thanks! :thumbsup:

If you'r enot having the described issue then I would think you can safely hide the update. That being said, I would make a note of the name of the update so that you can easily search it out on the Windows update site should you experience problems later on.
