    It is known to have problems so I have still not installed it yet.
    Some had no problems but others did.
    I am going to save an image of my laptop then try, when I have the time.

    I installed the update september last year.
    But I think it is installed with my windows 8 cd? Because I have reļnstalled windows 8 3 months ago.

    I created an image of my harddrive (just in case) and I have now installed KB3000850.

    Everything is working fine, so it might be worth giving it a go.
