    Not sure if this was posted. MS pulled four updates. KB2982791, KB2970228, KB2975719 and KB2975331.

    MS14-045: Description of the security update for kernel-mode drivers: August 12, 2014 It is updated to include info concerning fntcache.dat etc. But their recommended fix is more complicated than necessary.

    Does anyone really know what is going on? This is very frustrating - not knowing if you have a problem, and if you do, not knowing exactly what to do. They need to be forthcoming with a detailed explanation of this fiasco soon!

    Have you seen these threads on Microsoft Community? Lots of good info and explanations there. Obviously not direct from MS but you could be holding your breath a long time until you get that.

    I have them all applied, with no issues that I know of, but now I'm wondering what to do myself. This really is a mess. Is it just me or does this seem to be happening a lot more than it did in the past? I don't remember near so many issues with Windows update when I was running windows 7.

    It would be interesting to find a pattern as to which configurations are affected, it just doesn't make sense that it is random.
    My laptop and desktop are about as different hardware wise as you'll find. They both have AMD processors but one is a Phenom and the other an A-10 APU. Nvidia chip-set versus AMD chipset. They both have Crucial SSD's and are both running 8.1 Pro with Media Center x64. Clean installs with TechNet ISO. Windows Defender, Office 2013, no Start Menu utility.

    Start8 is pretty good since it goes to great lengths to add additional functionality of its own rather than messing with system components. There is another alternative that restores as much of Aero Glass functionality that's still left as possible and that does hook into the system at a low level, but if you're running that then you probably need to expect some difficulties.

    In any case I don't think it'll make any difference, during the KB2919355 fiasco I tried (among many other things) disabling all third-party drivers, add-ons, startup options, and everything else, still got the same result, "We couldn't complete the update".

    The thread is getting a little long to have a quick read again but, it seems there may be three issues here.
    !. BSODs
    2. All updates are installed, without problems
    and, 3. My issue, which seems to be rare. I have, for the test, a very normal Windows 8.1, with little unorthodox customisation, no off beat third party programs installed. My attempts (several) result in a total failure to install any of the August updates.
    Is it possible that, through some mysterious MS way, some of us are protected from even applying this update.

    Well, my own view. I was in no hurry to install the update, having read how little it could offer. I think, by the time I tried to download and install, the vulnerabilities had been discovered, and the download had been rendered inoperative.
