KB981793 appeared as an important Windows 7 Update — today.
When I saw ‘revised daylight saving time and time zone laws in several countries‘ I was IMMEDIATELY on the alert. I know the code words. ‘Several countries’ invariably means NOT USA.
So I checked. Yes, there is a Microsoft Support article about this update.
Well this update appears to fix problems with standard time in:
- Pacific SA
Well I don’t live or deal with any of those countries. In the case of Bangladesh it says ‘Cancels DST.’ Thank Ballmer in Drag for that. Bangladesh is unlikely to have needed time changes.
I had to look up where Kamchatka was. Appears to be where Sarah Palin comes from. Now all is clear.
So I am giving this a miss.
I have also not installed the latest Windows Defender. Yes, it has been popping up for a week.
Hope this helps. Cheers.
