    I have just installed Norton Internet Security and wonder if I should continue to use Microsoft Security Updates and whether the Security Updates could possibly affect my Norton Security adversely. Can anyone address this issue?

  2. Greetings --

    Yes, you should continue to download and install any applicable
    Microsoft security updates. NIS, while a useful tool, cannot fill the
    void left by a non-maintained operating system.

  3. Updates do not replace antivirus which does not replace the need for a
    firewall which doe not replace the need for updates etc.
    All 3 are necessary.
    Skipping any one leaves your computer quite vulnerable:
