I had always stood by my practice to never allow automatic Windows downloading/updating. Time and again, I have been vindicated. As recently as a botched release on 10 Sep 2013.
Thus far, I had adopted a "holding period" of 2 to 3 weeks.
Researching where I can, but mainly waiting for cries from some demented souls on the internet
But this is getting increasingly onerous with the weekly growing deluge of updates.
Even going through the list of pending updates is a chore.
I keep a blacklist. But there is no easy way to check if a particular one is pending on any given computer. A year ago, I missed one which resulted in a server BSD! And it was a known one!
I am hoping that some Experts would have tips and suggestions to help make life a bit more easy for me. Thanks
