Windows patch trips up on HP tool, firewall | Tech News on ZDNet
A "critical" Windows patch can cause trouble on computers that run certain Hewlett-Packard photo-sharing software or the Kerio firewall, Microsoft said.http://news.zdnet.co...026.html?tag=nl.e589
For me, one way is to delay the patches by a couple of days so that the problem can surface.
However, the patches were released last week and I only knew about the problems today.
So this is where a software line Goback really helps which allows me to turn back the clock literally.http://www.goback.com/
It's the only Symantec product I have and have saved me before but not this round since I do not have the affected software mentioned in the article.
But who knows when the next problematical "critical" patch will come around and mess things up for me or you.
But in that sense, I'm prepared.
It would be good to find out how others "protect" themselves from potential patching disaster other than imaging your system before patching.
