    Exactly. I have never experienced a problem with an update, hotfix or patch from Microsoft, and then there are others that run into problems EVERY month.
    Yes, your either very PC smart or luckier then others ! I'll say make sure to have a system restore point before hand. I get your point similar to a driver update, we always do read it's fixes before installing it.

    Finaly found a solution in the spanish community Microsoft forum that works for me:

    1.- Uninstall KB3045999. DON'T REBOOT.
    2,. Install KB3022345 and reboot system (if there is no error)
    3.- Install KB3045999 and reboot system.

    Seems the problem is the order of installation of the updates.
    Hope it helps.

    Hi

    Followed harry987 and it also worked for me also in the UK

    Deleted KB3045999, don't reboot, installed KB3022345 then KB3045999 then rebooted.

    Many thanks

    How stupid I feel after checking each of the 20 optional updates out one by one. None of them really applied to my pc's and installation evidently did a number on each pc. Luckily I had backups just prior to the date of the Windows Updates and was able to return to my previous status on both pc's. A lesson learned - don't install unless you know WHAT you are installing - don't rely on MS for always telling you the consequences of installing an update . I won't do that again! My SFC and DISM are both working again without being confused by these 20 updates. No telling what will happen when Windows 10 hits installation date - just be cautious.

    I guess that depends on your installation and other factors as I've not run into any issues with them installed (again). I say again, because this is a fresh install as I had to do an OS reinstall for an issue I had prior to these updates.

    But yeah, Microsoft could do a better job of telling you what these "optional" updates are for, and why you need or want them. Especially if they're going to pump 20 of them to you at a time.

    2 more "Optional " Updates today today, which I hid due to no applicability to my pc's. I think many of these are pertaining to Windows Phone, which I do not have. I am watching them closer now and just hiding them as they come out.

Hi. On XP I used to use GnuWin32, you just select .patch file -> Open with -> patch.bat and it does the work, now on Win8 this doesn't do anything, I guess because of admin privileges? So how do I apply patches on Windows 8 Pro x64?
