    Hello, i recently noticed my security program 360 Total Security does patch updates and when i looked closer i noticed at that point it was doing security updates meant for windows 8. Do i even need those on my vista home premium machine. I should mention this lap top has been sitting off for a couple years and i just acquired it a few days ago to teach my self a little more about computers. I wiped it and reinstalled vista and did all the updates windows had for me and i am now up to date(or so Windows Update says) and have SP2. I am using a HP noteboook g60-447cl if this makes a difference. Any input is appreciated. Thank You.
