  1. Softpedia is not the 1st place I look for information, I've even stopped using it as a source for applications (opinion)
  2. MS recycles KB #'s - I suppose it makes managing some updates easier (SURT and SFC come readily to mind)
  3. Someone probably already posted this, but I just looked to post it as part of my answer:

    Update: January 14, 2014
    This security update was originally released on October 8, 2013. The security update was rereleased on January 14, 2014, for computers that are running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. The rerelease addresses an issue in which one of the drivers of the USB 2.0 core stack is not updated in some specific computer configurations.
    Clear as mud!
  4. I think the rest of the KB article (Known issues, resolution) applies to the original release and this (Jan 14) release addresses those issues. Just a guess.
1) I avoid Softpedia for anything - mostly because it's too awkward to avoid clicking on the wrong download button.

2) NO - MS NEVER recycle KB numbers, as the number is issued at the start of a project, not the end (which is why there are so many gaps in the published numbers), and that number stays with all internal systems forever.
If for any reason (such as happened here) a patch has to be reworked, then it will be re-issued as version .x under the same KB number - and WU will pick it up since it checks versioning through the cat/mum/manifest file system to ensure that the latest version is installed.

3) Yeah - I posted it, but it seems to have been deleted (or got lost in the post).

4) Quite possible - this is likely to be because of cretins like Softpedia probably still offering the older patch and causing problems.


HTH?

Noel, your's is still there, post #13

Robin, I hid all 3 of my updates right off the bat after I realized I had previously hidden KB2862330 & something in reading the 'More Info' on the other 2 didn't set right with me until further reading up on them which I haven't done yet.

I must be the lucky one when it comes to Windows Upadates.
The only ones I hide are Bing anything and drivers I don't want.
I take all the rest and so far that has worked well for me.

Same here Jack, I don't have any problems. I do them all at once too unless some are unchecked by default, then finish them off on the second round. No Bing bar or desktop though.

I tend also to let all the Windows Update related install on my system, just hiding Bing Desktop and Update to Drivers for my hardwares.

As the others stated, i do install what's checked before and at second turn the unchecked (not optional ones). It as always works fine like that, even that tough kb2862330, but i felt i did wrong not unplug some devices before as it had really frozen the logon screen and couldn't type any password or restart/stop button. Hard reboot once in a while!

Same here. I hide anything to do with ^%$#@! Bing and install the rest. I do wait until Friday evening or Saturday morning before installing to make sure there aren't any reports of problems. I also make an image of my boot drive first, right after running full anti-malware scans.

I just did this month's updates (4) and, so far, no problems.
