    Default Tip. Battery backup to gaurd against power cuts during update installation

    Tip:

    I have read in several threads and on different forums about people loosing power during an update installation. The end result usually causes a variety of problems in Vista and I assume W7 as well.

    I use a battery backup system on all my desktops. A good one will also include a good surge protector and a guarantee against hardware damage from surges.

    This protects against such disasters. Obviously laptops have a built in battery backup but I still suggest using a surge protector on your laptops.
