    At least the security updates available through autoupdate should be
    installed without much procrastination.
    Sometimes it is a good practice to just let them download while on the net
    and protected, until the yellow sign says ready for install.
    Then go offline, take your on-access scanner and other background software
    down for a while and actually install the updates.
    It is no failure to have a look at the support website of your
    computer/mainboard manufacturer and watch out for hints on installing their
    updated mainboard drivers/utilities.
