    No worries Wynona.

    Mine shows the same 9600.17041 in the registry, but shows 6.3.9600.17031 under Hardware Abstraction Layer in System Information (msinfo32).

    I just call it Windows 8.1.1 because Windows 8.1 Update 1 sounds tedious and Windows 8.1 Update without context can refer to the ACTUAL Windows 8.1 release itself.

    Wow, what a confused computer. Mine says the same . . . I tried looking in System Information, but didn't look far enough down to find this! And . . . for what it's worth, very few will look in the Registry; System Information is where everyone will look first.

    Which makes me wonder . . . is Microsoft the confused one and not my computer?

    I guess I'll call it by its "official" name: Windows 8.1 Update; that's what the logical side of my brain makes me do! Dang thing don't give me no choice!

    And, for the record, we're not going to change what others call it . . .
