For now I'm not gona mess with it anymore.
    Not an expert in troubleshooting system errors, but my question is which "small program" ???

    You might want make sure that small program isn't giving false alarms and is reliable, as is the ISO you downloaded.

    Just a reminder.

    The ISO is fine homes, no need to get paranoid All system items are running fine.

    Like I said I'm done messing around with this thing, its working normal now.

    I am one of those that hopes MS will release the ISO I seen someone post about for this 8.1W/update1 end of April , I hope its true, I will D/L the thing again than. All these ISO's are , are basicly trial's when you install them with one of the "public" install keys, They don't install with a "retail" paid key, you have to "activate" your legal copy using your retail key after you install the thing.

    Its why MS isn't all that concerned about these "leaked" ISO's, they know this, and besides they just add every install as another sale to add to their numbers lolol.

    I just got that one, but mine was only 2.6 mg
    I got the 2.6 MB one two, I think that's the third KB2919355 I've got. I was running the leaked version, that was KB2919355 no.1. Then I got it again through Windows update on the 8th. And now that last little one that I do believe is to fix a glitch in the other one.
    I have 3 KB2919355's on my computer also. If I understand it right, the last one only installs the files that are missing from the first April update.

    I'm pretty sure I had the large one too, Rawad. If I remember correctly that size means that we haven't downloaded and installed several other updates, and they're rolled into this larger one.

    I am just curious now , since I have the latest update how would I boot to desktop when I power on my PC, cause I read in the latest update you can pre boot to desktop.

    when I run Belarc Advisor (with the latest updated files) it shows these 8 Windows updates as missing
    Yet windows update doesn't pick any of these up, So I D/L them to run each as a manual, but every one said that they were NOT for my system???. They are kinda old, each of the .dll's it concerns I already have on system anyway with a newer date, maybe Belarc hasn't updated its files to use update 1 info, is my guess.

    I'm aware of that homes. Just curious what that "small program" was. Anyway you seem to have it all under control.
