  • More problems with this month’s patches

    The fun never ends.

    The Win8.1 Monthly Rollup, KB 4056895, now has an acknowledged bug:

    After installing this update, some systems running both PIC and APIC interrupt controllers may experience system crashes.

    You hardware folks may know… when is a Windows user likely to have both PIC and APIC enabled? (Thx to the anonymous poster who mentioned this.)

    I’m happy to report that there were no new patches distributed through the Windows Update Catalog yesterday, Saturday Jan. 20.

    Other than the problems I’ve documented in Computerworld, any other bugs lurking?
