    I had 21 updates and 1 optional, did them all with no issues. KB2975719 was one of them. I see it listed on 8/12/2014 as well as today. I've had a couple of reboots since then and no issues that I know of. My System screen shows Windows as activated.

    Re KB989647 is listed as an update but isn't checked to download on my laptop. I did take a look at what it was about and have no idea what's it's all about. Since it wasn't checked to download, I need not worry about it, correct? Also, is there anything special I need to do before downloading all the updates?

    Some updates need to be done by them selves, that may be why its unchecked. It's unchecked for me too on my laptop. It wasn't that update that was unchecked for me. I'm just doing the updates now, 22 in total. After a reboot i'll run Windows update again and see if its till listed, if it is I'll install it then. I can't remember if I installed that update on my desktop PC, there was 1 update unchecked. I'll have a look later on when I'm back on my desktop PC.

    After a reboot there was 1 update listed but unchecked, the last 4 digits were 4006 though not 9647. KB989647 is listed twice in my update history? The first one done with all the others is listed as Succeeded and the second more recent entry as failed? Running check for updates shows up to date?

    For me
    9647 is checked & downloaded - Important update - only one in Update history dated Sept 10

    4006 is Optional update dated Sept 10 - downloaded - only one in update history

    No problems with any.

    KB2984006 is listed as optional for me also. I installed it and no issues that I know of. I just checked on my desktop and after doing all the rest yesterday and KB2989647 is listed but not checked. It wasn't checked yesterday so that's why its not checked now I guess. I'm going to apply it anyway.

    Thank you alpha. I was so stressed out yesterday re these updates I was nearly in tears....I'm allowed....I'm a Senior Citizen. My husband didn't bug me the rest of the day.
    Thanks for the info. I'll do as you suggested and if it's still listed after rebooting I'll installed it. One more thing, I reviewed that lengthy article about these updates, and it contained prerequisite to download before doing the updates, did you do that or it's not necessary. Thanks so much.
