Found a fix.

If you have Eset installed or any other anti virus that might cause the freeze, disable antivirus and Spyware protection.

The fix will install.

Updates are classified in a different manner (than vulnerabilities) - as important, recommended or optional.

no kb2286198 in my windows updates past week so what does it mean

in plain English, Havent seen it on windows updates, its not already in my downloaded and installed updates. so is it not important? and why does one need to work around an important update in the first place. hmmm

The work around was a temp fix before the update became available. I had to open Windows Update and have it search for the update in order to install it.

Go to control panel. Click Windows Update. Click search for updates. It should appear. If not, it is already installed.
