New Windows Update


[link to this post]
 
I've just been offered yesterday's single update. When I looked at the details there is a list of 'known issues' after installation. Have there been any yet? Is it safe to wait a week or two?

Dell Studio1558 with Win7 Home Premium
8GB RAM
HP Pavilion netbook Win8 8GB RAM
IE11 and Live Mail
BT Infinity via HH3
(Virgin 150Mbs as backup)

Yes it's safe to wait a week or two... But if its available why not just apply it?

I stopped both my machines at home from updating several years ago. They both managed to trash the user accounts in the process. My laptop at least I got back with a system restore but the server had to be restored from backup. I never used to believe the tales about it wrecking machines but now I do.

I installed yesterday security update on my Win 8.1 desktop. No ill-effect that I can see. However, what are the "known issues". I don't want to install anything on my laptop until I know what's going on.

EDIT: Just read this:

Even if a fraction of systems are affected, it's troubling. I'm going to change my update settingS.

A very very small minority.
