KB960714 or "Pass Me That Hemlock, Please"
Fatal errors and not one single clean reboot since this security update was
released.

I deleted the update and marked it "ignore" but still encounter "Windows
failed to shutdown properly ...".

Safe Mode, Restore Point, ad nauseum!

Chat w/MS Techy who says a "fix is coming for the fix" and I should just
wait for it.

What a crock! What did Install, Delete, Ignore do so I no longer have a
clean boot?

Suggestions? Hands?

Re: KB960714 or "Pass Me That Hemlock, Please"
No problems for me. Then again, I never have problems with updates from
Microsoft. I often wonder why other people encounter no end of trouble
with updates and I have smooth sailing every time. True, I am unusually
good looking, but I don't think that impacts Microsoft Update.

Here are some habits I've picked up over the years that more likely
explain my success:

1- I backup before major updates.
2- I close all open applications before installing updates.
3- I temporarily disable my security software before installing updates.
4- I search the web for information about updates before installing,
looking particularly for potential gotchas.
5- I won't install an update if my computer is having a problem, unless
the update was issued to specifically address that problem.

If I /were/ to encounter trouble with an update, I would probably just
restore my backup and then go search the web to see how others are
dealing. In fact, the simple act of regularly backing up leaves me way
ahead of most people who post here. No hemlock for me.

No problemos on this end.
