WARNING - latest Windows update may cause problems
Obviously, one swallow doesn't make a summer, and one user's experience doesn't indicate a trend: but I installed the latest Windows updates this evening, and my computer went bonkers! Ultra-slow, buggy, stumbling . . . very bad news. I tried three or four fixes before giving up and restoring to a pre-update version of the operating system. I'm currently running Spybot, Ad-Aware and a few other utilities to make sure I didn't pick up anything nasty from somewhere else, but they're clean so far.
Just a word of caution to those of you who haven't yet installed the latest Windows updates; they may cause problems. Make sure you create a system restore point before you update!
I won't put more blog posts up tonight, until the update/re-update/system-check process is complete. Check back for more tomorrow morning.
