Ok, so recently we have been reminded by events (several different types of severe crashes caused in august by dodgy updates, and sneaky attempts by microsoft to push 8.1 upgrades) that updates, critical as some of them may be, shouldn't be blindly and instantly installed. Maybe a thread should be set up for users to report crashes, failure of third party software programs, badly done coding, new features, sneaky tactics, blue screens of death, and other issues caused by particular updates. A list of WHICH did WHAT, because micorsoft's own descriptions can be so cryptic.



I think it might be a good idea for a thread on this subject to be setup as one of the "important" "pinned" threads, because it is really hard to find reliable information and reports on whether recent updates may have bugs in them or cause other problems. I tried posting one but i doubt anyone looked at it and i had to put it into the windows 8 forum so it wouldn't be seen by all the people who would need it either. A source of information on this that was independent of microsoft, collected loads of peoples findings, presented it in a clear way and could keep up to date with the updates it was describing could be immensely helpful, would be very popular and could be something unique that this site could offer. Another thing that could make this site stand out as a source of technical knowledge,advice and support.

That is for an old bug, i am suggesting a thread being up to date with problems as they happen. A place where anyone experiencing them can quickly and easily report them so others know as fast as possible. This type of thread i am suggesting could have meant that that bug was known about even earlier, and not so mnay people would have suffered it. If you remember when it happened microsoft never really gave a clear "you should Z" but instead flipped there advice between uninstalling it, doing nothing and reinstalling a new one over it. This type of thread could report updates which attmpt to force the 8.1 upgrade too, because microsoft themselves would never say which updates dd that. This type of thread could also give clear explanations as to what the actual purpose of an update is and what it does, microsoft just likes to say that something is "an update to fix known issues" without ever saying what issues and what fixes, or even more insultingly just guides users to a very generalised page saying they should do updates automatically but never says what an individual update is doing.
