    Hi everyone,
    I am running Windows XP on my MacBook Pro through BootCamp, mainly to play a game or two. I only gave this partition around 20GB.
    I was wondering if it was sensible of me to disable or remove the updates Windows XP automatically downloads considering I do not use this partition for Internet browsing, work or anything like that.
    Do such updates take up a lot of space or not?
    Thanks in advance. :)

    Yes indeed. Updates don't necessarily take up space, but they do use up your bandwidth needlessly. Since you don't have anything worth worrying about in Windows, leaving the update thing turned off is mighty fine.
