I have a medical office net work of 8 workstations and a server (windows 2003). I was advised not to install windows updates as they would lead to conflicts with our software but I have also been told I should install the security updates. We strictly limit internet access except to known sites and to
this point have been free of virus infestations etc (have antivirus software on all stations including server). Should I install any or all updates or move to Service Pack 3 and if so, how shall I proceed? On an unrelated issue, should I change my file system from FAT 32 TO NTFS (also have a corrupted file on 1 workstation) and is this easy and safe to do?

First off, the advice to not install critical updates is foolhardy.

NTFS is a far superior filesystem to FAT32, so conversion would help with reliability. You will obviously have to correct any filesystem errors before you can convert, so the one with a corrupted file will have to be fixed first.
