this has been bothering me for a while, microsoft and many other companies offer every once in a while updates to their programs, adobe office, explorers etc... if i have an active antivirus program, how important is it to always update, for instance if the update is a security update.
case in point, if i have a computer that i do not surf the net, only work on, but i transfer files to another computer back and forth with a usb chip.
or another example, if i connect the above computer only through outlook to get emails, do i have to worry about always updating microsoft office or adobe programs.
of course my anti virus is always updated.
(i hope i put the question in the right section)
