So i just want to clear up a few things having read certain threads: 1. Even if we are using a loader - can we update? 2. People are saying that MS is stopping some loaders (even though it doesn't/and cant stop the SLP keys.) Which loaders are affected by this? 3. Which particular updates are the ones that are blocking loaders, and therefore should be avoided? 4. Using VOATKTools, a loader can be removed (so returning the system to a 30 day trial) - can we then get all updates and after they have been installed, pacth the system again with a new loader and be okay? I installed 7 Ultimate a few months back for a friend and used Hazars loader (the version current at the time). They are getting some problems and since their Anti virus is Microsoft Security Essentials, it would be better if they can do some updates that might help fix problems since they arent technically minded. I'd rather keep windows updates on 24/7 just for peace of mind. So I am just wondering if there are particular updates to ignore and allow the rest?
