Well, i guess you have premium support from MS then, they should advise something
to be done to prevent systems from being vulnerable without breaking it..

You cannot build defense in depth if you do not patch your systems.
It should not be done via automatic windows update, but it should be done somehow.


You do not work with control systems much. They are worthless because
the updates that aren't provided with the system (from your control
system OEM) will likely BREAK the control system. The power plant I
worked at was running Windows 98 and NT 4. How many updates has MS
release for those lately??
