Live One Care Status Symbols RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it mandatory to download and install every update from Microsoft on my machine in order for the Live One Care status to remain "green"?  Unless I do, the status changes to a yellow symbol and warns me my computer may be in trouble.   I have MS Windows, XP Office Professional, but many of the updates are for programs I never use (OUtlook, Publisher, etc) and I am at 3/4 of my disc usage now.    Suggestions/advice w/b appreciated.  Thanks

  • One Care only requires updates classified as critical or important to be installed. Even if you don't use certain programs, if vulnerabilities exist in those programs you are at risk for those vulnerabilities to be exploited therefore you should install the updates.
