Well they didn't "kibosh" mine. But as usual with the patches. They really
only negatively affect a microscopicly small number of people. Usually in
concert with some combination of already installed hardware or software.
(Like the recent one that negatively interacted with certain virus
software).

So 100 people could come on here and say it works great for them, but that 0
proof that it's completely safe for you. The patches are removeable on the
very slim chance that you specifically will have a problem with them though.

Same as what Larry said, no problems and I don't install every
update presented, not even critical ones if I don't believe they
apply to my system. Every system is different and they can be
uninstalled but set a restore point if you feel it necessary.

I have installed 823559 without noticing any problem. I would not
install the other one unless you are running a Server system
