    In addition to asking here a Google search wouldn't hurt.

    Did anybody install the optional KB2984006 ? With the 12 important updates, I had no problem but after installing the optional KB2984006. I can't double click to open any folder in my PC (all 4 HD's) with an error message below. However, if I right click and select open in new window then the folder will open:

    EDIT: Dism & Sfc did not find anything wrong.

    PS. Restored and applied only 12 important updates.

    Did you read descriptions for that update ? There was some mention about track (touch) pads in it. Might be your problem right there.

    I installed them all at the same time. No problem such as yours.

    I installed KB2984006 anyway and have no problems. I don't even have a track or touch pad.

    Thanks but there's no where to mention about touch pad.:

    Strange thing is even I uninstalled KB2984006, the problem still persist. Had to restore from backup image to fix it.

    Hit the “More information” link. It should open to this page:

    September 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2

    Expand “List of the fixed issues”. There’s a whole slew of fixes.

    Thanks Tony & Mike
    Yes, I did not click on expand all and now I saw all fixes. I went back to earlier version of my backup image and all is cool now.

    You’re most welcome. Can’t see anything in the list of updates in the rollup that would seem to cause your problem.

    About the only thing I could use is the “Improvement for Bing Smart Search in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2”. I use that quite a bit. Very handy feature.

    I take it that it will only install those individual updates that apply to a particular system. It downloads all of them, but only installs those that apply. Do I have that correct? If so, the disregarded ones get deleted via Disk Cleanup?

    You come across as critical of my post on this forum asking a relevant question?

    Yes, a Google search would have given many, many results ... but this is a forum specific to Windows 8, so it will be my first port of call for questions I have on any Win8 issues.
