Windows updates causing increasing problems

  1. Anyone else finding the same thing?
    I am getting an increasing number of machines into the wksps which are refusing to boot after an automated XP update. Not necessarily SPIII but some of the small ones are equally responsible.
    Usually I can get a temporary fix by using system restore but not always and have to resort to a windows repair and then disable the updates to stop it happening again. Not the ideal solution perhaps but expedient under the circumstances.
    Also I visited a Gigabyte site today to be told that I had to uninstall an XP service pack if I wanted to run elements of the site under XP - Vista worked OK.

    You can remove the Windows updates individually with the Windows installer cleanup utility instead of a big Repair (which will remove them all!)

    Also which Gigabyte site link exactly? (I want to try it from my end)

    Hi Kimsland - if I could be sure which update was responsible - this particular machine was reported to have done 17 updates before it fell over!
