Windows 8.1 Aug Update Released (KB2975719)

  1. #161


    I'm running fine with IE11 immersive, but occasionally desktop version. Use Office 2013 a lot. Other programs too. Having no issues whatsoever.

    I suppose uninstalling the updates wouldn't hurt if you ran ok before.

    But you have to ask yourself one question.....

    Source:

    August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2

    I think this is about as definitive as it's going to get from MS (which isn't saying much)

    Should I or should I not uninstall those 4 updates or what???
    I haven't got my head around this issue either but I performed a clean installation the other day, due to another issue, and none of this stuff exists on my machine and I have no problems.
    It's an option; a time consuming one but an option.

    I think MS is letting a lot of oops' slip through the door!

    My system installed only 2 of the 4 suspected buggy updates, KB2982791 and KB2975719. I did uninstall both as a test, when I rebooted Windows update had some updates it wanted to install but they were dated June 2014 ?????? I didn't understand why that would be.

    So I ended up putting my backup image on and now I'm going to keep the updates and see what Microsoft has to say about how the fix will be best handled, if they ever tell us. If I do have a crash I'll just re-image and uninstall the updates, especially KB2982791.

    FWIW, Even tho I wasn't having any problems.I uninstalled KB2975719 and things went downhill. I had to restore from a Macrium Reflect Image I had made August 12 immediately before the updates to get back to "normal". I did this on August 19 and my pc has been fine since. HippsieGypsie and Dirty Harry are right on - " you have to ask yourself one question....".

    Just for the record, had those updates installed, no problems showed up. Uninstalled them ('just in case' and following MS' recommendation), no problems with that either. So all well, and simply waiting to see if any 'updated updates' show up.

    KB2982791 and KB2975719 were installed via Windows update on two of my PC's. One laptop and one desktop. No issues on either PC. As a precaution I uninstalled both on both PC's, still no issues on either PC?

    shutdown/ipv4


    interesting
    since i updated, but not on initial release and have since removed the 4 problematic KB's,
    according to the attached screenshot, (date has been checked)
    my lappy has not shutdown,
    nor am i connected and hence my basic network connection shows as unknown
    .
    My power settings do not include any sleep/hybrid/hibernation settings.
    i am posting this unconnected,

    Hi, all. I stop by occasionally to check in for any important material that has been posted and do whatever I have to do. Well, things were just fine until this Microsoft fiasco. I understand about uninstalling the defected updates by reading the article by Microsoft and posts here. I haven't done it yet, I see some people have additional problems after uninstalling the updates, which gives me pause about uninstalling. And, why in the world doesn't Microsoft contact users directly with all important information........why does one have to search to see if there are any problems? Microsoft really needs to get its act together....regular folks using their program shouldn't have to dig for necessary information...it should be automatically sent to the people.

    How would you suggest they send it to you? Microsoft doesn't send you e-mail unless you subscribe to it from them. They are one of the few companies that don't spam your inbox with stuff. The usual method is to pull the patch, which they did, and then issue a patch to undo of fix those that did the original patch before it was pulled. They also post info on their web site. Once other sites see that info they post it on their sites and the message gets spread.
