The August Windows Update caused me major problems. I restored my pc using Macrium Reflect to 2 months earlier to overcome the problems.
Microsoft have apparently pulled the August Update, so yesterday (18th) I allowed Windows to update, assuming the available update now to be safe. However, I still had problems but I've overcome them.
The question is, was I safe to allow Windows to download the update? Microsoft are recommending that users uninstall the August Update, involving tinkering with the Registry. Can I assume that this is only for those unfortunate enough to have downloaded the original August Update.
