    It may be a PITA and you shouldn't have to, but try installing them one at a time. It may work.

    Looks like this update may have been pulled already. Some are having taskbar issues in Metro screens. Taskbar Shows on Start Screen After Windows Updates

    Thanks for that, Kerry. I didn't notice that for I have that feature turned off.

    Hopefully pulling that buggy update will cure other update installs and BSODs some are having problems with.

    I didn't have any issues with it myself, but others did. I just uninstalled it on my desktop as a precaution and all still appears fine. I made a restore point first.

    Just out of curiosity, are we all on the same page version wise?
    I've got:
    System (HAL) Version - 6.3.9600.17196
    Kernel Version - 6.3.9600.17238

    I just uninstalled this update while tracing another issue and now find a whole new batch of updates offered. These were offered immediately following the KB2975719 uninstall. I'm going to revert back to Tuesday and see what is offered I think.

    I shouldn't need to make a full system backup every time Microsoft releases an update to Windows.
    Also, for the folks who have updates set to install automatically (which I believe is still the default) , they may wake up one morning to find that an update has broken their system, without the opportunity to make a backup first.

    Smart thing is to make backups regularly anyway, don't have to wait for updates to do it. I never had a failed update but still have Updates set to "Notify only". In the past, with Win7 and specially with XP had auto updates set to manual only, there were many more problems with those OSs. XP used to get unregistered many times because of some update yet when those were included in service packs, everything was OK.
