    keep your operating system up to date, don't expect performance increases from OS updates.

    Just as the above stated, do your updates on a regular basis. Don't think of it as performance, unless your thinking of keeping it clean and free from malware, becoming an unknowing bot or stopping slow, bad things from happening. Stay clean, because the bad dudes that want to do bad things are always a step ahead. Anti-virus and anti-malware are always, always catching up. It is incredible how fast those that want to can take advantage of any opening. And there are always openings. Stay clean and stay happy.

    I wish Microsoft would give up on it, but I know they won't.

    I can see them coming to my deathbed and ask me if I want to make Bing my default search provider.

    Right click on the update and choose to hide it: out of sight, out of mind. ;)

    MS securities patches alone are not good enough. Make sure that you review other related tools and utilities like Chrome, Firefox, Flash, Java ... as well.

    cheers ...

    It will potentially eliminate reductions/stoppages in performance (ie: malware, virus, etc.)

    I dunno if I've ever seen such a huge update as the cumulative W8 update this week, 170 MB!
    That almost sounds like a service pack... :D
