Right now I am holding off on installing them till I find what the problem is.

Hi there, in response to original Post...

For what it's worth, just be aware that this update (and others available for the .NET environment in December have caused huge problems on 5 of my home PC's.... all different brands and different versions of Windows 7.

100% CPU usage
Kills WI-Fi adapter and
DHCP client fails
Overrides my Windows Update Settings (I had it to download but let me choose what and when to install)... it forced install of this update 3 times on 2 PC's, in one case even though I had hidden it, and done a system restore....

So if you can do without it, don't install it! If you must, do a System Restore Point backup FIRST.


BTW on one PC I had to do a complete re-install of Win 7 to factory settings, had no Virus's on any of my PC's and all above symptoms occurred again and again, very poor in my view

Thanks for the reply. I have found a couple of other threads where there were difficultties with those two updates. I presently have them loaded on both of my rigs. If I encounter any more problems I will scrap them.
