    My latest "Important" Windows Updates notification


    This a.m. I see there are a bunch of "Important" Win8.1 updates recommended (my Win update settings are to notify me, but to allow me to choose whether or not to download & install them.

    Have there been any known issues / problems with these updates?

    Downloaded and installed. No problems so far. I did have a problem with an overlapping scroll bar and taskbar in the Metro window. The updates seem to have taken care of it.

    W10 x64 pro and W8.1 x86


    I had an "issue" on both my PC's after installing these. IE11 settings have been altered, specifically the zoom to the strange figure of 156%.

    I can confirm this happened on W8.1 x64 and W8.1 x86 Enterprise. Both installs are what I would regard as "clean" in the sense that they are MS only as regards installed browsers and so on.


    Nobody else notice this ?

    Hmmm... very strange. It sounds like it might be some conflict with my installed programs (similar to Libre Office and the Kindmap issue). Both PC's have pretty much identical set ups when it comes to installed programs.

    Major problem for me with 2975719 AGAIN. In August it was "optional" and I couldn't install it, so I hid it. Now in Sept. it is "important" and I can't install it. It downloads, tries to install and then backs out the install - about a 10 minute process. Error code in Event Viewer is 0x800f0922. Pisses me off!
