I am looking to have a computer that I want to keep development only, and try not to connect to the internet, or my network at all.
I am curious if there is anything wrong with not updating anything with Windows Update, on that machine, if I am not connected to the internet?
The only thing I've really seen on Windows update is fixes against exploits, and not really malware, so if I transferred files to the un-updated computer, could there be issues? How likely would it be to get malware that could take advantange of an exploit that's patched on one machine, be able to get transferred to another, unpatched machine? Thanks
EDIT: I figured I would mention the reason I want to not update is because I have noticed many times in the past, including this new computer, that when I update there are many things that started to act up, or slow down. For instance, trying to type a search into youtube will freeze, and then a few seconds later will type out everything I wrote. This would NOT happen before updating.
EDIT 2: Just a note that I am using Windows 7.
