Beware this Windows update.

I came across Windows update KB889673-86-ENU on some internet sight or other, don`t remember which one but it seemed O.K. at the time.It may even have been an official Microsoft sight.I did the very foolish thing of downloading it without reading what it was for.It turned out to be for problems re.Bootup+bootdown,Restart,hibernate,etc.I did not have any of these problems,at least not till I had downloaded this up-date.I then did have the very problems that this update was meant to solve. Thank goodness that the download also created a system restore point for Me.The message must be read every thing before installing any update and remember your system restor.I will be wiser next time.

There is no Microsoft Knowledge Base link for KB889673(-86-ENU).

There is only ONE place for Windows updates - and that is the Windows Update site.

There is no two ways about it.

Not quite true - they can be downloaded manually if preferred from the Microsoft website (pick only what is required):

Well done! MS's own search engine couldn't bring it up...:-)

Thank you Stuarti, I thought I had seen things. As for Jackcoms,it seems that in this case there is two ways about it.I have learned my lesson I hope others do.
