    After an unexpected and disappointing break on my first SP3, MSFT complete coverage sent me a replacement SP3 fairly quickly.

    In the interim there have been updates from MSFT which seems to make things worse and I've seen links and articles on ZDNet about MSFT recommending uninstalling updates.

    Before I do anything, can someone point me in the right direction as to what recent updates and should have and which ones to remove?

    A good rule of thumb is to update everything you can prior to installing any other programs but the optimal time to do that is not going to be between the second and third Tuesday of the month.

    If it's new you may be worrying about nothing.

    Thanks Leeshor. All the talk of overheating and WiFi issues and all that made me think I missed something earth shattering while I was using my SP2.

    I've not had any real problems (I mean, it got pretty hot while siting in my lap 2 days ago) but wasn't certain if the advice to uninstall some of the updates was official or not.
