    Guys, I have Windows XP installed on my macbook using bootcamp. Will there be any harm to update windows XP through microsoft online updates? Would it cause any conflict with the mac drivers that came with bootcamp?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not at all -- set to use Automatic Windows Updates and you'll be fine. And don't forget to install and properly configure some form of Anti-Virus and Firewall software. My perference is Norton SystemWorks -- the entire package. I also use AdAware and SpyBot as anti-spyware. Both of those programs are free.
