That puts you one ahead of me.
Two of mine are having an argument about, which Scotch is best,
The paranoia one I'll leave alone "too depressing to listen to".
I'll wait for the majority vote between the other two and have a scotch.

Does it hurt to uninstall that KB even without Error Coded 55?
I'm having problems with FF20.0 and Malwarebytes that I never had before.
Hey Jack,

I wouldn't think so if you haven't had issues, but since you are, you might go ahead and uninstall it to see if you still have the issues with FF20.0 and Malwarebytes.
I uninstalled the KB and so far it had no ill effect.
I did find the Firefox problem and fixed it.
It was a false Google home page. I reset Google home page and as of now it works as it should.

Good to hear that it was a separate issue for Firefox.

There was a Firefox update (20.0.1) yesterday.
I wonder if it was related to this issue?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 

Pulled the update from the home server and a couple other PCs that are on automatic updates just to be on the safe side, luckily none of them BSoD'd! The rest (including mine) are all on manual updates so nothing was to be worried there.

This was a nice moment to keep in mind that it's always a good idea to not immediately spring for updates, lest there be hidden surprises.

Now if everyone took that approach, then we would not know if there was a problem now would we :-)

I kid of course. It is wise to manage updates for businesses. They can use the massive number of home computers as a test bed. And you can too, if you wait a tiny bit.

Not to derail this thread. I hope this is considered to be on topic:
Why did MS not throttle KB2823324 like they seem to be doing for another Windows Kernel-Mode drivers update KB2807986? Throttling limits the number of computers that could barf all at once. I guess the vulnerability in KB2823324 is much worse. But Dustin says:

Update 2823324 addresses a Moderate-level vulnerability that requires an attacker to have physical computer access to exploit.

Have had a couple of (scary) problems the last few days, but not sure what caused them. Haven't uninstalled yet and machine SEEMS to be running fine. Anyone heard of this affecting either the GPU or drivers for it/them?

This buggy update problem was confined to Brazilian users with Kaspersky antivirus installed, so if people aren't seeing the exact symptoms described then there's no need to uninstall it.

Uh oh!

I don't know if it is related, but my computer has just started displaying some annoying/weird issues:
  • The Recycle Bin always forgets its "View" settings now (it used to forget occasionally, usually if I opened it when it only contained images)
  • My Event Viewer thinks that Startup (100) is actually Shutdown (200)
