I always know when the monthly Windows patches are due to arrive, as when I boot up my machine is slow, unresponsive and downright frustrating until I've loaded them....and that's if they don't cause problems. But they're not done yet, as when I shut down they still seem to be doing something and to add to that, next time I boot up they then reappear and once again appear to be loading. Today's lot reappeared on my third boot up. I know they could be important, but historically they've caused me significant freezing problems and I'm beginning to dread them and class them as an unwelcome nuisance. Anyone else ditto?
