    Sheesh, Caper, there it is in my Installed Updates, although it's not there when I right click the Start Button/Window, click on Programs and Features and search for KB2962140. I just cannot figure out why something will show up in one or the other, but not both. And . . . it seems as though whatever won't show in both is usually an important update! Methinks MS blew it on this one too.
