If you're running an external modem you want to be careful of updates on 9.1
(I'm running Personal). Version 9 Pro completely broke the external modem
when updated; version 9.1 only makes it difficult to keep working properly.
I completely reverted my system to out-of-the-box status because of this.
Have not yet determined exactly what update is causing the problem, but I'm
working on it.
