    Have been watching these threads carefully.

    Installed all these updates on Tuesday, did the optional update separately after the first batch. All were successful although there seemed to be a lot of disk activity later on Tuesday, looked to be a lot of re-indexing going on but never had any other strange behavior and system has been running fine.

    Have contemplated the un-install of the optional one or even all Tuesday Updates but since PC is running perfectly I am going to hold off and wait & see. I have Restore Point, Custom Refresh Image as well as a Macrium Image done before the updates so I think I am prepared for just about anything or at least I hope so.

    Can't believe MS has done this again. I think some folks, especially those that don't have back-up options, are in for a OS reinstall or factory reset.

    The power problem still persisting , HP has arranged a onsite repair thinking of hardware issue

    There are some changes I have noted since the update - The down taskbar is no more coming while when metro apps are opened & the Minimize option in the top panel near 'X' mark is not there - has it been removed - just a doubt? - it was way convenient before...

    The taskbar not auto hiding has been noted. Look here for a possible solution, Taskbar Shows on Start Screen After Windows Updates. The missing minimize button is a new one. I didn't have that issue.

    I just undid my uninstall on my desktop PC by going back to the restore point I created before uninstalling it. I have no issues at all, at least non that I know of. I'm thinking with KB2975719 installed I may be able to give better support to questions etc. Knock on wood.

    It would be interesting to find a pattern as to which configurations are affected, it just doesn't make sense that it is random.

    The "Show Windows Store Apps on Taskbar" option was Unchecked, I honestly don't know how did that happen, anyway I've not messed up with those properties at all till now.
    I didn't know whether the Update caused change in Settings and all, anyway

    I checked it & everything is back to normal. Thanks guys..




    Still Power issue persisting, I'm currently using lap with AC plugged in alone with no battery.
