So I’ve downloaded and installed the XP update, like I’m supposed to, and so far it’s managed to mess with BlackIce (if this patch is supposed to improve my security why is the firewall the first thing it screws up?) and lose the drivers for the USB modem (much swearing and a desperate scrabble around to find the installation disks ensued). Those problems seem to be solved, but I wonder what other programs it’s pissed off to the point of not working any more.
Microsoft- the world leader in unproductivity tools. When I’m brave enough I’m going over to Linux. (I’ve been saying that for years. One day…….)
