I also update manually, but the issues I've had with friends' PCs that I've worked on generally stem from never updating for long periods, then trying to fix an issue. If you keep up with it there's usually fewer problems...which is what the updates are there to prevent. Once some data corruption has had time to set in, who knows what can happen.
Whenever I reformat, whether it's a friend's rig or my own, I always install all the updates. Yes, even the optional ones. Not knowing how they or I will be utilizing the PC in the future, I feel it's best to cover the bases with a fresh system rather than trying to fix it later.
