Microsoft multi-updates - avoid...

Settled down yesterday morning to install the mega-updates to Windows that Microsoft released to the public on Tuesday, only to find my super-fast main PC operating at the speed of molasses.

A quick run-through revealed that the updates had caused serious speed issues with Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0, as well as Microsoft Office 2000 - Powerpoint I think - and that's just for starters.

After a couple of hours faffing around, I gave up and rolled the machine back to where it was last weekend.

And now it's flying once again. Thanks for wasting my afternoon Microsoft... :(
