    Update failure - KB3001652

    Would still like to know myself. I have several other Win 7 and 8.1 boxes at home. Three in total have a remnant folder. Seems like they're all physically etched into the system.

    Update failure - KB3001652

    I recall when NetFramework updates would crash on the installs, a bunch of the updates over time. As vendors typically had a runtime version with their software, I ignored the failed updates as they accumulated until I needed one. The solution was to remove every one in reverse order and then...

    See last paragraph, this update has already been pulled by MS... Microsoft's Patch Tuesday release leaves one big vulnerability unpatched | ZDNet

    Ditto again. While they're at it, perhaps they could fix the problem of having to go back into Windows Update, after updating, to update again. Seems like such a simple thing (ask Apple) - I swear MS stands for Monkey Sh_t (for brains, that is) rather than MicroSoft...
