    Microsoft re-releases August Update (Update 2) Windows 8.1


    Microsoft has re-released its second major update for Windows 8.1, also known as the August Update (Update 2 for those keeping track). The update originally launched on August 12, but was pulled a few days later due to a few bugs which rendered 0.01% of users unable to use their PC's properly. Either way, the update is back in Windows Update with all bugs squashed, so get updating!

    Hi there

    Works fine for me

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

    For me, it happens in RDP only. Even if I apply this fix, it comes again with a reboot
