How to find new 'Patch Tuesday' patches?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?WW9zaGloYW1h?=, Oct 12, 2007.

  1. It looks like I made a huge mistake. Yesterday was 'Patch Tuesday' for
    October, and instead of carefully looking at everything that would be
    installed, I just opted for the express install. One reboot later, and now
    my system is hanging randomly. So my best guess is that I need to back out
    the patches (if possible), but I'm not even sure what the new patches were.
    Anyone know a good way to find the list of latest patches for XP64?

    Go to Windows Update, on the left side you can select installed updates and
    see all the updates and the status of the installs.

    If you are in a hurry you can also try system restore and leave your system
    as it was previous to the Tuesday patches.

    System Restore will not remove the program updates that are made as part of
    the patches. That is why you are advised to uninstall any programs which
    were installed after the selected restore point if it is not to be
    reinstalled.

    Good point, I had never taken detail that into account.

    Carlos:
    No need to apologize. Grammatically English is backwards compared
    with most other languages, unfortunately American followed English in that
    respect. Have a great day.

    So much for those well-intentioned "experts" that advise small businesses
    and individuals to enable "automatic" updates on all their software in order
    to ensure that they are always up to date with the latest patches. Even
    Symantec LiveUpdate has an option for "Express install" which I have
    rejected. Please always select "custom install" and view the list of updates
    before deciding to install anything, except maybe the "malicious software
    detection" tool released monthly. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of
    cure.

    There have been an unusual number of updates that have caused problems the
    last 4-5 months.
