Update: Windows Update update breaks updates

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/10...eaks_updates/1

The stealth update to Windows Update last month managed to break something - the ability to update Windows after using XP's recover feature.

Or an updated update, which reminds me my updates aren't up to date.

windows updates updates are never up to date as they should be updated to keep the updates up to date.

Words can hardly describe this situation, so I'll do it with little pictures courtesy of bit-tech...

What's wrong with this, they fixed the issue within a DAY! That is good going. There are bugs in some things that remain unfixed for months/years/forever (oracle!)

Updates to the update engine are perfectly fair, you would want the latest one when you decide to get updates etc. (Also, only users with "non legit versions" of windows will have it disabled at home.. offices would uses SUS servers.. so that isn't an issue here)

I guess the only reasons this was fixed so much is that it breaks a fixing solution for windows XP (which is pretty important for a MS OS) and because after the anger at the update happening, forcing a bugged piece of software on people would have caused an uproar

1- I'm confused, the article talks about winXP or Vista. I see a Vista screen shot.
2- WinXP reparation is crap. It usually creates more problem than it repairs (form my experience) and takes the SAME TIME (close the the minute) then doing a fresh re-install including formating and re-installing yourself all the applications and doing the updates.

I guess you don't have that many programs installed then... It's a breeze for those of us that sits a whole day or two configuring all the installed applications ><

Ok, I had about 71 of them, anyways, I'm picky about everything and all settings beeing "just right", so it takes me at least a good 8 hours setting everything up on my normal system.

With windows repair I could even exchange the mainboard and CPU without any problem at all, and it'll only take maximum 2 hours total to get the drivers installed and win repaired
