This got installed yesterday with no ill effects as yet. Made sure that I did a disc-image first though.

Just installed a big Windows update (No idea what number it was, don't care really) and so far have not encountered any problems. I would like to thank the Microsoft guys for finally getting their act together....




.... So far of course.

My PC has just informed me that these downloads have been installed and a reboot is required. It can wait until I log off.

Touch wood and hope I won't regret this but . . . . across a PC and two lappys I've not had a problem for a long time so the reboot anxiety of old has long gone.

I'm grateful that Windoze doesn't get as many updates as Android.
