Here we are again- Patch tuesday

It is a snowy patch Tuesday here but I would like to know how it went for everyone
I am a bit confused, when looking at mine there is one that says security update for windows kb2887069
when clicking on more info- it shows that one is a kernel drive one but the kb is different kb 2880430Also I have the same thing and it also says it is a kernel drive on for kb28993984 and when clicking on more info it says it is also kb2880430- huh?

what I seem to gather is that kb2887069 and kb2893974 are both for kernel drivers?
Am I correct?
and if so why would Microsoft make 2 kbs the same thing?

Installing all 8 updated as I type this, will probably reboot and let you guys know how it went. So I will edit this post as I return.

Ok back, everything went ok. Very fast update, no hiccups.

I updated several systems and they all updated, re-booted without issues, and no problems so far.
On one W7 x86 system Optional KB2592687 installed successfully, and after re-boot was offered again as an update.
It installed successfully again, and is not "re-offered" after the 2nd update.

Also, fwiw
On a Win XP x86 system it took a LONG time to scan for the updates available.
Haven't done any Vista OS updates yet...

hth,

Known Issue
The trick there is apparently to kill WU then download and install the IE Cumulative update as a standalone - then reboot and install the others.

Windows 7 Professional X64 Service Pack 1
 
 

Win7 64, I generally have no problems with updates, but this last one just messed up a whole bunch of things. My cache was dumped, had to enter PW's again. Most every web site I visited wanted me to acknowledge that the certificates were not up to date. FF is giving me a message that "it looks like you haven't started FF in a while...." its been constantly on. My system date dropped back to 01/01/2010. Most of the programs in the programs selection were colored orange as if they were new programs. Windows tried to auto update, said internet was not available, yet I could send/receive mail, was able to browse etc. All the icons on the tray went back into hiding. It has taken me a couple of hours now getting things back to normal.
