No, Necessary patches are available for free directly from Microsoft.  Microsoft does not ask for any personal information (credit card etc) to use Windows Update.  If you are being asked for that type of information in conjunction with an update, it is not from Microsoft.

Recently people have been asking about http://www.windowspatch.net ,  http://www.windowspatch.info and possibly others. This site seems to change the URL subtly occasionally. That site is not affiliated with Microsoft and an appropriate patch is available for free at this link: MS03-043: Buffer Overrun in Messenger Service Could Allow Code Execution

If you received this message and the top of the box says "Messenger Service", your computer may not be fully protected.
You need a firewall to control Messenger Service ads as well as other items to properly protect your computer.
