    That's good advice IMHO

    I took the plunge and installed it. I did a system restore and a system backup first. The only reason that I installed it was it said it repaired some USB problems and some PDF reader problems that I have.

    I just installed the NEW KB2975719 which I already had that KB# from the August 12th update. I didn't uninstall the original, the new one was about 400k which was smaller than the original. It now shows that 2 new updates were installed, KB2979582 and KB2993100 which are dated September 2nd. The KB2975719 still shows the original date of August 12th.

    All seems good.

    Maybe you need to install some other updates before you can install this one?

    Read the install instructions and details:

    I've read the previous posts on the latest KB2975719, and am still unsure whether I should perform the update or not. It is showing as an optional update

    Is is always better to uninstall the previous update KB2975719 before installing the latest version?

    Or will the latest file just overwrite & replace the older file?
