    Do you download them as soon as they come out or you feel you cant be bothered and do it some other time? And is there a need to download them as soon as they come out?

    I haven't done a windows update in years. I think the last time was when SP2 came out. I don't see the point in them if you have firewall and virus protection already on your system and keep everything up to date.

    I don't always download when a new version of something is ready for download if i am happy with the current version then I click no or skip and the only think i do always download is virus and spyware definitions and newer versions of those types of programs

    Vista SP1 came out a while ago I think. Still I don't think I've updated yet.

    Only when I needed sp2 for petty programs... Like their security updates are worth the price on a rats ass.

    I let Syndicate deal with things like that. It's not that I can't be bothered, I just don't understand what's safe and what isn't when it comes to PC's. He's always looked after my baby.

    That's like me, I only download something when I absolutely need it! ^^

    I have all updates go automatically when I turn my computer off.

    I also update stuff like itunes, firefox, and chrome.

    When SP3 came out I went for it though it's a necessity to keep your computer running in top condition.
