    The updated ISO is currently available on MSDN for customers who have access. The updated ISO will be available for Volume License customers on 4/14. Based on what I'm hearing right now, e-distributors including windows.com and microsoftstore.com should have updated ISOs available by 4/30.
    I think you'll find that none of those will be easily obtainable for the average Joe. If that's what your thinking. I do believe all of the above are paid for services.

    Edit: I may have disabled a service or two.... re-enabled, and not update has appeared in the control panel.
    OK, it sounded like you may have done quit a few, so that's why I asked. What are you running for Anti-virus? Some anti-virus programs can cause issues when system files need to be updated or replaced. They treat it like an infection and block it.

    That doesn't surprise me, considering what they talk about over there.

    Done that! I spent 3 hours to end up with black screen and 3 Remote Control pop-ups which wouldn't go away. Finally had to use Macrium reflect image made just before Tuesday's updates and am back where I started. So much for Microsoft Support.
