30 year celebration! and Resolving Windows Update Failures

About the meeting:

Thirty years ago, BNUG came to be, under the leadership of Glenn Fund. Since then we've held meetings every month and other events, most at no charge to members. Come to the meeting and help yourself to some cake to celebrate our 3 decades.

As you munch your cake, learn about how the current iteration of windows update failures involves Microsoft issuing 14 different updates. Some were not supposed to have anything to do with Windows update and worked. Some updates ended up breaking more than they fixed. Some updates can only be installed in a very specific manner. A mess? Yep. Come to the meeting and learn about the history, the process, and what does, and does not work.

About our speaker:

She specializes in helping IT professionals and end-users become more effective and comfortable using technology and specializes in desktop user support, troubleshooting, and training, plus security and in mentoring others.
