I can't help but wonder, when the day will come, when patches overwhelm, pc resources..
I mean gigabytes of patches and programs running, adds up on any system. I wonder how much better, a pc would run, with none of that stuff on it.
I'd think it would be, significantly better.

Generally patches change or replace something, they don't run on top of what they patched. So probably about the same. That's why a "fully patched" Windows XP SP3 still fits on a CD :)

not if the patch is to fix an issue whereby your pc hangs or slows down while running something, patches are a neccessary evil due to the variety and amount of People involved in the tech industry and beyond and a patch is applied, it doesnt often run more then the once on install

As always 99% patches to prevent remote code execution. Bug fixing, performance and stability improving are more needed.

Not true for Vista and 7 unfortunately. The patches move the replaced files into some obscure folder on Windows System where it keep growing and growing ...And yes, you CANNOT delete those old files, even if nobody will EVER use those again...

There is a folder in Windows 7 where all the patches from Windows Update goes. You can delete these to save space.
In fact, there are instructions regarding how to do exactly that in some of the better Windows 7 SSD optimization guides.

Windows Update download cache : C:WindowsSoftwareDistributionDownload
Delete that to free up space.
