    hi guys!

    what is the easiest way for novices to determine which windows update
    to keep or ignore ?

    my specs:

    OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    System Name DELL4400
    Total Physical Memory 768.00 MB
    Service Pack 2 Build 2600
    Intel Pentium(R)4 CPU 1.6GHZ

    anyone know about this update?

    Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1

    Download size: 2.5 MB, less than 1 minute
    The Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 is the application installation and configuration service for Windows. The additional features in version 3.1 help make creating, distributing, and managing updates to applications easier and more efficient.

    thanx

    ronjor,

    thanx for the reply.

    i dont know too much about this stuff.
    what i do know is that certain updates may destabilize the system.
    can u tell me if this is ok to install + where can i find a lamens site
    to scrutinize updates? i go to castlecops startuplist to find out
    what startups are ok and which ones to ignore + this works.
    are there such sites for updates ?

    thanx
