Now I have my windows updates turned off so that only I can update manually, because I see that there are times that Windows will put out an update and from time to time, it will tear up someone's system, inadvertently. I have these updates queued in my windows updater deal and I'd like to go ahead and update, but I am really worried that if I allow that IE 8 update go through, then it will place me in the same boat as my friends. I also worry about other updates that come through, and might potentially mess my system up.
My system specs are on my profile, if that is needed, but right now my question is - is it SAFE to update now? The updates that are queued to be downloaded and installed, are the bad/buggy updates fixed or are they the same bad ones that my friends received and is waiting to pounce me? LOL
Advice is appreciated, and I am well aware that following the advice given to me is to be followed entirely at my own risk. I will not hold anyone at Geeks to Go responsible for that free advice. I had to throw that in, just in case anyone felt the need to mention it to me.
