Re: KB958644 causing System to hang after reboot

Notice a lot of posts saying that trouble was experienced with this update.

Which is even more surprising since my install-tracker indicates that it
only replaces a single file, netapi32.dll in the system32 dir. Admittedly the
replacement file is three times the size of the original - why so much larger
is anyone's guess.

I'd like to get this rolled-out onto the servers as soon as possible as they
are the main machines at risk - but I'm wary of problems so I've just done
two today, a 2000 and a 2003 and will see how they fare when people login on
monday.

[Folks who have NOT experienced problems don't tend to post to the
newsgroups to crow about it.]
