    What do you mean from 98? XP wasn't around in 1998 so how could it offer you XP updates that are from 1998? :dunno:

    In general though, I always update. :)

    Don't be a dick. Your question was poorly worded and he wanted clarification. Don't flame the people who try and help you out... :slap:

    I do the critical updates but not the service packs unless its a new installation. Too many things can go wrong when you replace that many files at once (been there, done that) and XP's service pack 1 was notorious for killing Windows.
