    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?
    Hi, I have just installed it over the previous version and no problems so far - knock on wood!

    Thanks for the feedback, it gives me confidence to update KB2975719 by downloading and installing without deleting the original update

    I left KB2975719 Sept 2 optional update in my system and did not install it or hide it. This morning I checked updates and it was gone. Have they pulled it again or is there a time limit to install optional updates?

    Mine also disappeared. Pretty sure updates, optional or otherwise, don't just "disappear". They are pulled. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    I never installed the August version of KB2975719 and now won't be installing this (since its gone).

    KB2975719 is now back as part of Sept. Update Tuesday (or whatever it is now called). Listed as important. I have 12 total. Don't think I will be installing anything for a few days until the dust settles.

    I installed all updates today and also Restored KB2975719 which was also listed as important here!
    No updates pending, PC is up to date and all seems to be in good order!
    The only thing I noticed was 'Folders' was restored in 'This PC'.

    Yep - it's back as an "important" update and it still will not install on my pc. I get he loop of downloading, installing, then uninstalling each time I try. Error Code in Event Viewer is 0x800f0922. Since it's now important, I am more concerned about it. If anyone finds any solution, please post it. Thanks.
