I installed the Microsoft February updates eg.
KB944533/KB943055/KB946026/KB890830) and had problems with lots of blue
screens and difficulty connecting to server.
I restored to an earlier date and have not re-installed them.
If I deleted these ( still in the notification area) and installed the
updates from Microsoft site - would the glitches have been sorted out after a
few weeks- and therefore patches included to sort out problems?
Also, should one block own firewall (Bullguard in this case) when installing
updates and then turn on again afterwards??
I run Windows XP Pro Media Centre model with Service Pack2 and use Internet
Explorer and Outlook Express.
Thanks in anticipation for any answers.
