    My golden rule for this scenario is installing as little as you can and
    run as little as possible.

    If you have to use it then make sure it's patched.

    Subject: which security hotfixs to implemet ?

    Hi,
    I ran microsoft baseline security against our IIS web
    servers.
    the output ( for example) on some servers was that
    there are some critical updates related to windows
    media player which I need to implement ,my question
    is: Do I really need to implement fixes to
    applications that I dont use ( but still are installed
    on the server) on those servers (like windwos media
    player that we dont use on our web servers? ).

    thanks !
