August Patch Tuesday

A total of 15 updates for me this month. There are two large .NET 4 updates which are initially not selected. Apply these after the main bunch they take a long time to apply. On the shutdown for restart it sat at the preparing updates screen for over 30 minutes so be patient.

Odd. I received the same updates as you did since I, also, have Office 2010 (plus two additional ones for my MS Keyboard and mouse) but the restart was maybe 5 minutes at most.

Very strange. It seems to have gone in with no reported issues.

Mmm. Maybe it's because I have the full .NET 4 rather than just the client profile. Plus I've always had issues with .NET 4. Had to re-install it twice.

Installed fairly quickly for me without any problems, and took about ten minutes for the lot.

Mmm. Apparently there is a fixit for the problem. Which is even stranger because the update applied it.Installing updates for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 can take longer than expected in some scenarios

I also did the updates today, Damn, again because I like office 2003 and have outlook 2010, the updates screwed up my outlook. But after about the 3rd or 4th time I have been thru this, I just went to control panel program and then selected outlook 2010 and change. told it to repair and all is well again.
BTW, if you use itunes and sync an iphone or ipad, don't do it until you repair your outlook..

But I am a happy camper now. And my updates only took about 10 minutes.

Thanks for looking that up, Kado. Probably the issue you encountered with the updates installing over a longer period of time than those of replying, so far, have experienced.
Great research!

Both updates for .Net Framework 4 were not checked by default. Including Office 2010 x64, 15 important updates too. Will see how long it will take to install.
