The safest is to get the system updates from a disc. If you have another system, get the updates and copy them over. (If Microsoft still lets you download them without actually doing so with the system in question). Otherwise I'm not sure, but firewalls sometimes help, while you're downloading the stuff. Once you've updated all the critical security stuff the spyware based on system exploits and worms won't be able to get installed.

Uh, but it's already fully updated? Can't be.
