Update failure - KB3001652

Ok, I somehow managed to delete the thing by activating a hidden Administrator and then take ownership according to this tutorial:
How to Enable / Activate Hidden Administrator Account in Windows? - AskVG

Man, now that was a PITA. I remember having big problem with a released update before that everyone suffered from just because I was so impatient to install it on the same day of release. I guess I'm too stubborn to learn that I should always wait a couple of days before installing any updates from MS.

Anyway, are these installed software that I mentioned earlier really needed for the update to function? (Visual Studio 2010 x86, x64 and Visual Studio Tools 2010 for Office Runtime)

Didn't work on Win 8.1...

For now, I just force shutdown my tab & not going to install them as of now.
If you delete the left over folders in root of C:\ the version offered today seems OK.

Tried deleting after taking ownership and also used Unlocker program - both didn't work, Unlocked program is not able to run(no error messages) - just that it doesn't run : tried Run as Admin while logged in as Admin. :(

This tab doesn't have CD-ROM drive or standard USB port.

Hi evryone: the folder is still there , any idea on how to take it down?

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.
