I can still get updates to MSE using Windows 7 Updates.
I'm thinking that I will just have to wait until next month and see what happens.
I did the exact same thing and I'm getting the same results from WU.

I just checked for updates again and my system seems to be going through the motions of checking and replies that the system is up to date.

I ran a SFC scan and it reported that there were no problems. Like you I guess I will wait and see. Although I'm really not looking forward to another update cycle. MS sure has damaged my trust in their ability to safely provide proper updates. Like others have said I'll be postponing updates for a time to see how they go.

This does pose the question that if everyone starts waiting to see if the updates are without issue who will be the first to try them?
I did the same thing, uninstalled KB 3004394 even though I didn't see any problems...

Out of curiosity to test if WU is still working (without waiting a month) I uninstalled another update.
Rebooted, and that update is available again.
I installed it and need to reboot again.

I'm going to Restore a Backup Image from before this months Patch BETA Tuesday updates.
I'm getting tired of this monthly nonsense, seems to be getting worse not better.

Yep that sounds like a simple message update to uninstall the other one :)

I wish I had a backup from prior to the update, another lesson learned the hard way . My most recent full image is from 12/1.

For now the best I can do is a system restore created prior to the update. I am hesitant about doing that but probably will as I fear sooner or later this will come back to bite me. The longer I wait the more difficult things will become.

That's exactly what I did. Left KB3004394 installed as it caused zero problems and just switched on my machine to see that KB3024777 was being offered so I installed it.

These Windows Updates issues never bother me too much. I've always got a choice of several backups to roll back to in the event of problems!

Anyone seen these show up yet? Normally I come home from work and they are waiting but today I'm off and checking (just want to get them done and out of the way). It's 5.30 UK time but no sign of them yet on my machine. I might be jumping the gun a bit Cheers, Wayne
