Default Do not install KB982670 if you run windows xp

it kills your boot time by over 2-3 minutes. before you can get network access


it is framework 4 for .net

So what you're saying is don't do a Boo Boo?

Actually, it is the right forum - an OS update. KB982670 is not an auto update for XP. It is an optional one that is not needed.

"Specifically, the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile is released as a recommended update that may be installed automatically on Windows Vista and Windows 7. The Client Profile is released as an optional update for Windows XP. In Windows XP, you must manually run WU and select the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile."

I just ran this last night on a fresh XP Home w/ SP3 slipstreamed refresh I'm doing for my friends mom.

Boot times remained the same as far as I can tell.

I've ordered that it be installed on numerous PCs, and I haven't had anyone complain of significantly lengthened boot times yet.

I've installed that update on a number of machines(15+) without any issues
There is one optional update that for some reason breaks the network stack on the machines that I've installed it on, which is the Windows PowerShell 2.0 and WinRM 2.0 can't remember what the kb number is at the moment

I've installed it on many machines so far and haven't really noticed any issues...

I've put it on a couple of xp computers and while the boot time was not affected, it did slow the starting up of windows firewall long enough to show the "no firewall" notification for a few minutes.

Do you have a link to back this up or is this your experience?

I always debate whether to install the optional .NET versions on a system when I am loading XP.

I just installed that patch on a dozen XP systems, and had no problems with extended boot times.
