    Need help clearing confusion on August 2014 updates


    Hello. In mid-August, I tried to install the updates for the Windows August update. A lot of the updates failed, except for a few, and my computer seems fine. I then read that lots of people had issues with their computer. I just wanted to figure out if I should uninstall some them, and if so, which ones. Here is a list of all succeeded updates since August:


    • KB2975719 (re-released)
    • KB2993651
    • KB2979500
    • KB2978742
    • KB2976627
    • KB2976897
    • KB2978668
    • KB2966826
    • KB2981655
    • KB2966828
    • KB2982794
    • KB2976978
    • KB2971239
    • KB2981580
    • KB2982791
    • KB2918614
    • KB2967917


    If you could help clear the confusion that would be great. Thanks.

    These are the ones they recommended uninstalling:

    • KB2982791
    • KB2970228
    • KB2975719
    • KB2975331

    The 5719 re-release if fine. You don't appear to have any of the others.

    Edit: Whoops you do have 2791. Kind of up to you if everything is working fine I might not mess with it.
