So I've been removing old programs that I haven't or don't use and I noticed that I have dozens of MS Security Updates dating back to 2004. Do I need to keep them or can I remove them, so long as I have the current updates?



Yeah, it should, but we don't live in Shouldland! Ah, Shouldland, where clean-cut kids cruise Shouldland Boulevard, and the Shouldland High football team gets their optimistic asses kicked by their crosstown rival, Reality Check Tech.

You need to keep them. Just uncheck the "Show Updates" box so you don't have to see them in the list. You can go into the Windows directory and delete the files from those updates(in hidden folders) if you are trying to save space but there are a couple of the folders you shouldn't so do a google search first if you try it.

I used to build my own, but have just bought the last two outright, largely because you can get ones more than satisfactory for most users cheaply. The only upgrades I've done to my current and previous ones were upping the memory.
