  • Hello!

    No! Surely no! Automatic Updates are most important things in Win XP. For receiving Security UPdates you may leave it as they are :)

    No, not A.U. slows down your PC, but some registry. Try a CHCKDSK or a defrag :)

    Bye

  • I have XP pro sp2 and find the operating system getting too heavy for the way old computer I am blessed to have. I let my comp download but choose instal myself based on some reading and problems people run into with the mother board I am using. This keeps me working for free yet I am learning some and computer has all it needs, ie netframework hot fixes ect... And as I do not go to sites where I may pick up things and avoid email from people I do not know,(other than forward them too place received like AOL or GMAIL when they are fraudulent).  I never follow links on said email I open out of interest after I talk w my provider. Hope that helps.
