In the last few days Microsoft released a lot of critical updates (~14 or so), which have automatically been applied to all our PCs at home. I’ve got a Vista Ultimate desktop on a machine which I configured and built from Tiger Direct. My son and daughter both have some HP laptops, that they purchased this year, running Vista Home Premium, and I have an older Dell laptop with Vista Ultimate.
All 4 of these machines are experiencing major problems. I cannot believe that this is coincidence. I strongly suspect that it is a result of at least one of these critical updates.
My desktop experienced a BSOD last night while I was working on an ASP.NET application. Lost everything.
My daughter’s laptop won’t come up at all.
My son’s laptop suddenly had massive display problems, went all “streaky” (you’d have to be here to see it) and the mouse froze.
As far as changes go, I had to purchase a new monitor yesterday for my desktop, as the only one died. No other changes.
For my son and daughter, they haven’t made any changes at all to their laptops. No new drivers, no new software, nothing.
The only similarity is that we’ve all had all of those critical updates from Microsoft applied automatically.
So, does anyone know one way or another if there is some issue with one or more of these updates? And if so, what in heck do we do about it???
