Is it possible that windows patches make any kind of alteration on SharePoint Configuration? (ex. Local Admin group, IIS Application Pool or anything in general)
Is it also possible that windows patches may affect SharePoint functionalities? (ex. Open document files, Search, etc...)
If windows patch gets regularly updated on a monthly basis but the SharePoint patch version doesn't get updated. Will it cause any kind of conflict?
I believe the questions are pretty much answerable by Yes or No. Providing an explanation is very much appreciated.
