I tried restore system setting to before update, and got a "failed to restore" error message
It is I suspect unrelated. I tried and saved to PDF an engineering schematic on 3 different machines. Just bad luck, try the repair function suggested by Wordsworth.

ok that was not fun. Installed the Kb 3001652 on Windows 8.1- (4 machines )no problem (btw you will not see this if you do not have ms office installed), now installed it all by itself. I do all updates in small bunches just in case but this one all by itself, well it seemed to install fine, asked for a reboot then the fun began. Windows 7 Pro sp1 came to login screen, put in my info and it opened but all the icons were blank and worse I could do nothing! Completely locked up, Control Alt Delete 2x nada!, so I shut it down and of course saw the famous black screen- well I picked Safe Mode, booted into that fine, I was going to uninstall it but I could not find it with all the other ms updates, so I prayed and rebooted in reg mode. She went in fine, so far all is well but I have 40 machines of clients to update remotely. This is my main business machine. It seemed to go fine on another test windows 7 pro one too, had same problem though. But I did it on another test Windows 7 Pro I have , It failed in the middle and it was so bad I had to do a system restore to get windows back, otherwise I would have had to reformat it, removing the update did NOTHING.
This is going to be hidden on all Windows 7 Pro machines until Microsoft figures this out.

it is amazing how it goes fine for Windows 8.1, I had no problems with it on there, is Microsoft trying to tell us something about Windows 7?

The last two months might make me a conspiracy theorist. I've had little trouble with WU through the years but last month had a fail, and yesterday KB3032622 failed the first time I tried to install.

No it is not only Windows 7, one of my machines was Windows 8.1 and it just kept trying to install the update until about 3 hours later it finally got done.
