Dang Microsoft updates
I'm getting really frustrated with all the updates from Microsoft.

Tuesday when I logged off, was notified Microsoft was installing
NINE (9) updates and not to turn off the computer.

The next morning when I turned on the computer it took several
minutes to finish the procedure and from then on it has been a
series of problems.

Prior to this I wasn't having any problems with Internet Explorer 8
but now it is continually freezing and takes several minutes to get
out of the freeze mode and open to my home page.

It is slower then it was and acts somewhat erratically after the updates.

I have a 4GB memory, Vista Ultimate 64x, 500GB HD and all
the bells and whistles..

It is really getting to be a hassel trying to clean up the after effects
of Microsoft's updates..

Hope Google gets their new operating system for home PC's.. I'll
change over in a millisecond.

I tried Restore and it didn't help this time.. I don't know which of
the nine updates has caused the problem and I'm not savvy enough
to go to Add/Remove and know which one to remove..

Any suggestions????????

Thanks..

Ok. Relax, take a deep breath. Shut down your computer.

Ok, now turn it on. What is the first problem you see? Fix it.

What is the next problem you see? Fix it.

What is the next problem you see? Fix it.

One step at a time...

Re: Dang Microsoft updates
NEVER, EVER use System Restore to "undo" updates!! Uninstall them instead.

Start a free Windows Update support incident request:
https://support.microsoft.com/oas/de...spx?gprid=6527

For home users, no-charge support is available by calling 1-866-PCSAFETY in
the United States and in Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft
subsidiary. There is no-charge for support calls that are associated with
security updates. When you call, clearly state that your problem is related
to a Security Update and cite the update's KB number (e.g., KB999999).

For more information about how to contact your local Microsoft subsidiary
for security update support issues, visit the International Support Web
site: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

For enterprise customers, support for security updates is available through
your usual support contacts.

Re: Dang Microsoft updates
I suggest you uninstall all of the recent updates. Then install the updates
one at a time. After a reasonable about of time without a problem install
the next one...repeat.

Do this for future updates as well.

RE: Dang Microsoft updates
I agree 100%. I have better things to do with my time than deal with all
these crappy updates that make the computer slower, freeze up, and my browser
never fails to shut down with some lame message that the problem is referred
to microsoft or something. After weeks you'd think they would have figured
out the problem. Apparently they don't see it as an inconvenience. I'd love
another choice in ops.

Re: Dang Microsoft updates
If installing updates makes your computer slower & freeze up, and your
browser fail to shut down, your computer was crapped-up before you installed
the updates!

Re: Dang Microsoft updates
PA Bear MS MVP????

You make some pretty outlandish statements at times.

You don't know what you are talking about... My system
was running pretty smoothly and no apparent problems
until those last updates and then strange things started
happening.

What do you mean, "Crapped Up"?... That's a crude
statement to make from someone supposedly knowledgeable
about Microsoft products and problems..

I use all the recommended maintenance procedures included
the use of the HOST file updates and have never had a
problem with viruses, parasites or other bad guys..

Something is wrong with Microsoft if they have to continually
send out 'fixes' for their programs..

I use MS Vista Ultimate 64x and IE8 (either 32 or 64bit)
and still have problems with IE8...

Re: Dang Microsoft updates
Feel free to begin a new thread about your specific problems. State your IE
version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista x64 SP2) in your
first post.
