Updating is the thing which we always do many times.And many softwares becomes complete by updating it or else they will not provide its services correctly.. But recently due to updates my friend got problems for her system which made to format completely the system,,,,,so from then Iam updating only which are important for updating . So friends is updating all softwares is good or not,,? Do u update always softwares?

I update my "update or die" softwares such as my anti-virus and my anti-malware. But the other softwares I put off the update because it tends to get a little laggy if they are on.

Much of the software I buy is on subscription so the updates are automatic. That is my preference. You are correct, though, in that sometimes there are problems with the system format changing.

Ya its better way to choose subsciptions it happens automatically,,,but we should be cautious in that otherwise some problems may cause,,,also when we dont bother due to automatic updates at backend makes system to work slower.

Just some critical or important updates, usually security software. I make sure that I read first what is the update before running it. I believe there is a windows update for Vista that will run Service Pack 1 on your computer and most of the time it will just ruin your operating system because there are still necessary updates that you have to manually download first.

I seldom want to upgrade softwares. I think the latest softwares are usually bigger and they will slow down the computer. And sometimes the new features are not so necessary for me. Such as I am still using Photoshop 4.0 and it's fine for me. I don't want to use the latest version anyway. I love China
