So far so good — methinks. I can’t find any reports of the February 9, 2010 Windows Update for security failing to install, BSOD or frying Windows 7 machines.
BUT, we need to be careful. Many having been badly burned with last month’s KB977074 might be doing exactly what we are doing. Biding their time, waiting for other suckers to try it out.
My druthers is to wait another 48 hours, i.e., until this Friday.
We are also finding out that malicious exploits that try to hack into un-updated machines will likely be around soon. They reckon within the next 2 weeks.
So this is a FINE LINE we walk.
If this update was anywhere near as disastrous as KB977074 we would have heard something by now.
I am beginning to believe that this update is not malignant. But, let me further confirm on Friday.
In the meantime I gather that Microsoft has admitted that there was a problem with KB977074. Gee, THANKS Microsoft. Isn’t it nice not to have any repercussions.
Well … Good Luck, for now. I will keep you posted.
