11955RE: [sdr-radio-com] Re: Struggling with SDR-Consol - Again
- Dec 1, 2012I run among others a machine with XPproSp3 32 , 4core, 3GHz 4GB , also for compatibility with some old soft of my interest, and this is the one I use more.
I had lot of problems with autoupgrade: MSIE upgrade, XP malware upgrades, and generally MSXP upgrades. More, I had severe problems from a certain time with Adobe acrobat readers upgrade, so that I endly left acrobat and went to a freeware pdf editor, simpler and lighter. I also had problems with MSIE upgrade (went back to 7 ), with MS Net Framework, with Java updates lately, and time ago with Apple soft upgrade.
The most damn thing was MySQL logger corrupted after some framework upgrade!
In fact I was not able to re-install MySQL in the logger, without removing Net Framework . And to remove it completely has not been a simple affair !!
So, I am not a PC guru and very often I scrap severely my head for a silly thing that for me is a big problem .... but I have learned by experience that when a system works fine, every upgrade may be a bad thing. So as long I can , I try not to update things that are not strictly necessary. The only auto-upgrade is for McAfee total protection. It gave me problems too, but only once, for an error.
Now I have some BSOD appearing just as I start an application short after OS loading ; my wife confessed she used that machine and approved some upgrade request ...
So, when I'll be in the right mood, I'll try another restore .... But why in the hell , when something is endly OK, they will ever plague us with such erroneous " upfdates" ? Or is this in the interest of selling always new versions, more heavy more complicated and more resources-hungry ?
When will we absolutely need 128 bit systems to find a telephon number in an agenda?I do nowadays lot of things that I did - not so many years ago - quite well and happily with singlecored 8 bit 2 MHz 256KB ram 20MB-HD machines !!! (but I did also earlier with simpler CPUs, like i.e. the glorious 6502 ! )Is that progress, or waste ???THINK (IBM, these years)73 de Augusto I2JJR

I run a WinXPpro machine at home (for some backward compatability with older hardware) & another at work (definitely for backward compatability with some older development tools). Based upon my personla experience with these two (very active . . . both used daily) machines, I would summarize updates this way: if you go two to three days *without* some kind of update, then it certainly bears looking into !!I can do no more than go to the MS Update website to determine what updates I need.
If I do so I go round in circles downloading and installing KB951847 again and again.
There are 8 others pending but I can find no way of getting those eight.
