    Hi-

    I'm new at this.
    When I'm downloading microsoft updates (SP2) do I have to turn off my firewall, spyware and anti-virus programs?

    Many thanks for the Reply

    No!

    Never turn off your security when updating something even if it's a Microsoft update.

    While I agree 100% with never turning off your security when updating, depending on your security, you may go click happy :blink: while they are installing.
    At least on my tower I do. Your experience may\will vary depending on your protection set-up. :rolleyes:
