Be wary of Security Update 2010-005
Authored by: Typhoon14 on Sep 16, '10 10:34:27AM

This definitely does not belong here. It's a well-known fact that for any given software update, there will be a small percentage of users for whom the update process does not go smoothly. If you post every hint from someone who has a problem updating, you'd have thousands of posts a day on that topic alone.

Now, if the user was able to identify a particular situation in which the update will cause problems every time, and provide a solution for this, that would be hint-worthy. As it stands, however, this hint just serves to confuse users. Reinstalling the combo update has long been standard operating procedure when a security or system update goes awry.
