Are patches really needed?
There are no quick answers to this question. Patches are usually intended to improve the performance of your programs, nevertheless, they have to be very stable so that they wouldn’t do any more harm than good. Before you install a patch, try to check how stable it is by asking around about any reported problems with the installation.
You can check the Internet forums about user experiences with the particular patch you might be about to apply. It is usually wiser to put off the patch installation for some time before deciding to go with it in order to see how people might react to its effects.
