    If you delete the left over folders in root of C:\ the version offered today seems OK.

    Even using built in Administrator account I could not take ownership to delete these folders (I got the "failed to enumerate" error). I had to boot from Linux live disk to get rid of them. If you have one this is probably the easiest way.
    Unfortunately, I don't. Is there any other way?

    You should be able to right click, go to properties, security, advanced and change the owner to your profile. It should then let you delete. Like I said though this didn't work for me.

    If you want to create a live disk you can download an ISO from here Download - CentOS Wiki and create a bootable usb stick using this LinuxLive USB Creator

    Also, I noticed after the successful install of the update today that it installed a bunch of things on my PC e.g. Visual Studio 2010 Redist x86, x64 and Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime x64. Are these really necessary for the update to function? I do have Office 2013.
    The way I did it was to go to file/folder properties, Securities tab, Advanced, Change Owner, use my userid.

    If you still can't delete this, try the program 'Unlocker' from filehippo.com:

    Download Unlocker 1.9.2 - FileHippo.com

    Be careful not to do the quick install or you will get a toolbar. Be very vigilant when you try out free software.

    How I ended up deleting the annoying folder on all my machines was by using Hiren's Boot CD and using the option to boot up from Mini Windows XP. Once booted, you're able to access File Manager and delete the folder with no issue. You can download Hiren's Boot CD from Download Hiren . Burn the ISO to a CD and you should be good to go, just make sure you first select to boot from your CD/DVD drive. Hope this helps.

    Ok, I somehow managed to delete the thing by activating a hidden Administrator and then take ownership according to this tutorial:
    How to Enable / Activate Hidden Administrator Account in Windows? - AskVG

    Man, now that was a PITA. I remember having big problem with a released update before that everyone suffered from just because I was so impatient to install it on the same day of release. I guess I'm too stubborn to learn that I should always wait a couple of days before installing any updates from MS.

    Anyway, are these installed software that I mentioned earlier really needed for the update to function? (Visual Studio 2010 x86, x64 and Visual Studio Tools 2010 for Office Runtime)

    Tried deleting after taking ownership and also used Unlocker program - both didn't work, Unlocked program is not able to run(no error messages) - just that it doesn't run : tried Run as Admin while logged in as Admin.

    This tab doesn't have CD-ROM drive or standard USB port.

    Do I need to install this update?
    After the problems mentioned, I really don't want to install it.
    But then I'm worried because it's an important update.
    What should I do?

    You should do exactly what you've done and not install updates on the first day but let others test them first

    Microsoft fixed it the next day so you are safe to install it.
