Wow - I have *no idea* how you took what I asked so wrongly - but it was a
simplistic question with a simplistic suggestion that could help you with
Uninstalling the problem updates and not automatically getting them again
and then getting them one at a time will better pinpoint which update
(specifically) is causing issues. I am unsure how there is a 'tone' to a
text message. My signature does not change - so if you take that
personally - it wasn't aimed at you.
As for working for Microsoft - no. I am a volunteer here - a user just like
you in many ways. I do troubleshoot computer problems daily and I share my
knowledge and experience at troubleshooting such things on these newsgroups
While I understand your frustration with your problems - I do not feel I
deserve the brunt of your hostility simply for asking a question and making
a logical troubleshooting suggestion... Since you did not specify what you
had/had not tried in order to resolve your issue - I could not know - so I
would naturally start at the beginning and easiest thing to try.
I am interested - both from ***boylaca and Tresa - just what about my
posting offended you? Was it the question about what you had tried? The
suggestion of trying what I specified and then troubleshooting by installing
the updates manually and selectively? Was it my signature? Was it the fact
that I had 'snipped' the original message (as this was started as a response
by Tresa to another posting) in my response? I cannot see how any of that
should be taken personally by either of you - as all I am trying to do is
