Win updates to-day

  muddypaws 19:37 12 Jul 06

I have just downloaded and installed today's windows updates: KB914388, 917159, 916595.
I restarted in the normal way--then everything went haywire. When the PC restarted it said that the computer could not be restored to some date in June! ( thank god for that). When it booted up my system tray was full of start up programmes that I had never heard of. It has taken me an hour in msconfig to get back to normal. Anyone else had any problems? If you haven't yet done those updates then beware.
Win XPHome SP2.

No problems with the updates here, muddypaws. You could restore to before you installed them and re-download.

Always set a Restore Point before I start though.

Thanks all. It's always the one time you don't set a restore point! Must have been a one off for my system.

Damn, and I'm about to reboot having just downloaded them all. You have me a little worried now.

Probably nothing to fret about though; I can't imagine any MS update creating the symptoms that you describe. Maybe they aren't related or your PC really was that "one in a million".
