    I think I'll wait a few days in case MS has screwed up again

    The "old one" didn't make me any problems. This "New and improved" I found today, uninstalled old one and reistalled the new one, no problems so far.

    Hi there

    I'm sure you DON'T have to install the updates but in general I've always found it worthwhile.

    In any case if you image your system BEFORE installing the update you can always restore if it doesn't work as expected - so I can't really see what the problem is.

    Cheers

    Note though it appears as an OPTIONAL update in Windows update -- about 173 MB.

    Hi, mine shows as 267KB in Windows Update. Is there a problem with it?

    This is an optional update anyway, so if there's no use for what it offers, there should be no problem at all.

    I have checked in Installed updates and the KB2975719 is already present - installed on 12.08. Did I have to uninstall it before applying the new KB2975719?

    Thanks, werty

    That's what I did, as they are same KB number it would not recognize it as new.

    I had already uninstalled the old 719 update. I installed the Sep./2 KB2975719. It installed KB2979582 and KB2993100 also dated Sep. 2. No problems yet.

    I am still unable to update it. Getting the same 800F0922 error code like the August one. Is there anything to do before getting fed up and wiping Windows?
