"Scarier that you've never visited Windows Update..."

Well, it's primarily a gaming system with win98, so I downloaded all the patches manually, and not from MS's site.

Any Microsoft.com sites are 127.0.0.1 in the hosts file for me...

Besides, it's on a dialup connection, firewalled, and scripting host, java, etc all turned off.

Never had a virus or spyware on this box, and I'm not excited about upgrading to MS's spyware OS anyway...
