Win7 Home premium - Updates good / bad?

I`m a home user, not new to PCs, and I`m using a Win7 home premium. I do browsing on safe web-sites, mainly reading news / book reviews, searching for jobs (so forums), and the occasional gaming. I use Chrome browser and a free antivir called Ad-Aware Antivirus.

Every couple of days there are some 'essential' updates / patches and so on that need to be installed from MS.
I`d like to know, will they do any good? From the experience I have so far (from home use and office use) the security patches / random updates will cause the system to move slower, boot slower, and so on.

Do the benefits of those patches outweigh the minuses to performance?

  1. It all depends on what it is patching. Some of the updates are to fix security issues in Windows and Internet Explorer. At a minimum I would install the security updates.
