    Updates Killed My Installation

    Yesterday after installing updates and rebooting my, computer crashed hard and I had to reset it. Today, it happened again so I'm restoring an image I made with Acronis. When it's up and running again, I'll check available updates and install one by one to see what the hell is going on.

    UPDATE: I'm back up and running so I searched for new updates and apart from a Windows Defender update, they are all Office updates. This is very strange

    UPDATE 2: They installed no problem one-by-one. I don't understand

    UPDATE 3: It was only a coincidence that the computer crashed after installing updates. The problem was the ASMedia SATA driver

Force updates installation during shut-down? (Win 7-like)
It seems that Windows 8 will only install some updates after a restart. No surprises here. However, since the Windows 8 "user" shutdown is not a real shutdown, but a hibernation (hence it will not be followed by a restart, and will not install updates), Windows 8 forces us to an extra...
