    Windows 8.1 Update showing on Windows Update again?


    Windows 8.1 Update 1 (KB2919355 is appearing for installation on both my pc's again today. Is this happening to anyone else in here? I am very skeptical about installing it, however, it indicates a "must" install in order to continue Windows Updates in the future......just like previously on April 8. What is going on???????

    I think I found the answer......Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 Update: April 2014

    It appeared again today but only as a 2mb download. When I looked at he install history, it showed up as KB2959977 under the unistall screen and KB2919355under the update history screen. This appears to be something to do with Windows Server so haven't got a clue why that applies to me!

    Also got KB2919355 no2 today, 2mb and requiring restart, showing up in history as a 2nd KB2919355. A little strange indeed.

    I just checked and have it waiting also. I wonder if they slipped in a fix for all those who had a problem with the first attempted installation fail ?
