    MS Vista Update KB937287 (Vista Home Premium)

    Folks,
    In the Feb 12 2008 release of patches from Microsoft for Vista, there was the infamous KB937287 patch that put machines into a reboot loop.
    I didn't download that one per the notification on Woody's website.
    Does anyone know if it is safe to download this one yet??

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    The patch apparently only caused problems if the automatic update feature tried to install it. It works OK if you install it yourself by going to the Microsoft Update site or download it from Update for Windows Vista (KB937287).

    I no longer consider "Woody" a reliable source of advice for either Windows or Office, unfortunately. I have NEVER had a problem with ANY Windows or Office update via automatic update. This isn't to say that some have, but the reason why they have is the question. The overwhelming majority of users have no problem(s) with these updates. Thus, my personal opinion is to go ahead and install everything Microsoft Update makes available; i.e., Critical and Security updates.

    Drivers (optional) should always be downloaded from the respective company's hardware website. <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/Ponder.gif>
