....if only the everyday computer user would read stories like yours! They would get a second Internal HDD or External HDD and make a system image at least once a week. I make one each time I install something new or before a large number of Windows Updates. I make a backup of all my User Files just about everyday.

Can you hear us out there!? Always, always backup your files and make a system image!

I checked and installed the unchecked update without issue, thinking to myself that it was kind of weird that a recommended update wasn't checked by default (why I remember). Oh well, at least I wasn't one of the update casualties.

Kind of weird that they would still include it while knowing it was buggy.

And yeah, I do have system image backups just in case.

All I saw Tuesday is a 9.4 mg update for MSE ?
Who knows one day the sitting and waiting kb will disappear from your list of updates.

What version of Windows 8? I have Windows 8 Pro 64-bit and did not get that update.

Sure glad I came across this thread. Twice in the last week my wife’s x64 Windows 7 system crashed and would not reboot. Windows Update had created a System Restore Point prior to installing a critical update but reverting to it did not help. The best image I had was almost two months old. Because there was a data partition on the same drive as the system partition, I restored with the “Reformat and Repartition” box unchecked. That failed to work either and now I was getting worried!

Finally restored to a new drive with the reformat and repartition box checked, and I was relieved to see that got the system running again. After copying the saved data partition to the new drive, we were in business… for about 24 hrs.

Next day, same problem! I had neglected to turn Windows Update off and it did its ugly deed again that night.

I think we are ok now, but having to restore with Reformatting and Repartitioning enabled seems more severe than others have reported here. Wouldn’t that mean that there was a boot record problem, which then might sound like more of a virus than an update issue? Does anyone have advice for me on that? I’m running MSE here and it thinks things are ok.

As it stands now, the system has been running ok for almost 48 hours, Windows Update is set to download but don’t install, and I manually installed all pending updates except KB2859537 about 4 hrs ago.

Weren't there some Windows Updates that are excluded when you go check for updates?

I don't think KB2859537 was initially unchecked, but then later it was. Think I got to it too early.
