"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It doesn't look like the answers that were given answered the original question. The question seems to be asking "Since we don't have vulnerable XP machines, do we need to bother with installing security updates for Win7?"

Yes, since Win7 has its own vulnerabilities, you should install all Win7 security updates.
