Don't use the update

12:07 PM 5/17/2017

So I just did a system restore to After the patch.
The system went through its motions and ended up with an error message
"System unable to restart"
-Nice work with the patch Microsoft!
luckily rather than exiting or 'report to Microsoft" I went through the advance restore options
a screen I've never seen before and was able to restore to an earlier restore point.

My confidence in Microsoft? Zero.

So I'm going to stay as is and no updates.
We'll let Security Essentials do its stuff!

note I used the security only update

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
