    XP updates...any I shouldn't do for a carputer?

    I just did a fresh install of XP. Are there any updates I should not do when updating?

    SP2.... wait before doing that. For a carputer with no internet access, I'd just throw SP 1 on there.

    I've done them all, including SP2 and except for MSN Messenger (I hate that friggin' thing), and have no issues. I don't think a lot of them were nessasary but oh well. Why are you asking. Are you having space issues? If so after your updates you can go into the windows DIR. and delete all the blue colored folders to save some space. Of course after that you can't uninstall any of the fixes.

    I am asking because I thought that it might slow down the computer if I did all of them. SP1 for sure, but after that I was wondering what was needed.

    thanks for the replies!

    ahh...Actually I saw a slight increase in shutdown speed from SP2 but no change in bootup time.
