Not sure how reliable Tom's Hardware is as a source - but if this is true, then I'm also going to hold off on any BIOS updates for a while too. I'm still running Haswell and it's apparently causing...

The last time I can remember having a problem with a .NET framework update was when I was running Vista - definitely not on Windows 7 though. Other than that, it's been smooth sailing for me. I've...

Can't speak for your system, but I've installed the .NET Framework update with no issues at all. I can't recall ever having an issue with any .NET Framework update I've installed to be honest.

The monthly rollup did show up on all my systems yesterday, mine are all Intel CPUs though. Not sure if it's been pulled since then as I haven't been home to check. Are you using an AMD processor?

If it's one of the processors that Intel has promised to fix then I think it'll most likely be a firmware/BIOS update needed, along with Windows update. Keep an eye out on both Intel and the...
