MS are aware of problems with certain chipset/driver combinations and the KB2670838 update
They are also aware of problems with the IE10 install

They are working on both issues, and will update as and when they are satisfied that they have solved the problems.
The recommendation in the meantime is that if the update doesn't install first time, make sure it's uninstalled, and then hide it - Windows Update will unhide it when it is updated.

Thanks. How will I know which other updates are related to IE10?

Does that IE10 blocker only block one update, the IE10 program itself?
