    Windows 8.1


    I hadn't heard about this KB2975719 thing until a few days ago, when it appeared in WU as an optional update it seems it was not available on the Patch Tuesday. I installed it and then my PC got all messy!

    First, right after installing it, I checked again for new updates and WU showed an error (I forgot to write it down). Then I tried a System Restore and it didn't work. Then the reversal of that System Restore didn't work. A warning says it may be a matter of disabling the anti-virus software.

    Now I open WU and it's all blank. Then I open Control Panel and it's all blank. And now it takes ages for simply shutting down my PC!

    CountMike, I am so sorry and embarrassed.....I would never use THAT WORD in any post. Reminder TO ME: Always read your posts before entering "reply"[/QUOTE]
    Oh, don't worry, I've been called worse , lol. Like I always say: "Call me anything you want but not late for lunch"[/QUOTE]

    You've been called worse......how can that be, you're such a good person. BTW, in the US the word we use is "dinner" not lunch. Then again I guess we could change the phrase to include both lunch and dinner. What the heck, also add "breakfast". LOL

    In Canada, we used Lunch for noon break when lunch (catering) truck arrives end we had Lunch break, others were coffee breaks, than go home for dinner, evening was for supper and morning was breakfast. No wander there's so many "handsomely rounded" people. Include "Midnight snack and you see the picture (in wide format).

    You have a great sense of humor. Just the other day in our local newspaper it stated that obesity has grown considerably in our state. It has really become a major health problem in the USA. Oh, and the midnight snack......I wake up anyway between 2:00-4:00 a.m. with hunger pangs......hard to refuse, so I have some cereal.....and skip the actual morning breakfast.

    Skipping morning break-" fast" is not a good idea
    But 2-4am snack may cover up for that

    Since early school days I never had o breakfast (coffee and doughnuts notwithstanding) but on the other hand I never updated Win XP (except for SPes) and survived. Never got fat or infected (XP ). Win7 I never updated before SP1 (actually I tried but they killed my activation so I gave up). After SP1 that problem was solved. Win 8 I religiously updated from the beginning and never a problem except for drivers for GPU when going from 8 to 8.1 but that got sorted out by AMD a week later.

    Win 8.1 Update x64


    During Windows 95, 98, XP days, I didn't know about updates I don't know if they released update then

    I think I got to know about these from when they released Win 7, but I've not had one to update

    But now in Win 8.1, I check for updates, do scans, backup etc , basically I planned for keeping updates set to automatic until these august updates came
