March IE Cumulative Security update is included in the Monthly Quality Rollup. So, if you downloaded the March Rollup it should be updated when you check IE (about).

Now my router has packed up.

Anyway it seems that something in the update screwed up drive letters and labels. Currently backing up all data to 1TB external drive.

Okay back up and running okay. I didn't reinstall this month's updates just yet. I'll wait a few days and see if anyone else had similar issues. I don't think the download got corrupted because the update installed okay and it showed up in update history. It was only after the next reboot that I has problems.

Thought router had packed up. However running a check revealed DSL connection down. Replaced Master Socket and ADSL Filter. Still had no connection. Trimmed back a couple of wires and connection started working.

Well update installed okay and showed up in update history after the reboot. It was after the next reboot a few minutes later that I got the problem. Internet connection is now fixed. Had to replace Master Socket and ADSL filter. I'll hold off on this month's updates for a few days and see if anyone else got boot problems.

Here's screenshots. Drive labelled V is a RAMdisk so doesn't show up in the first screenshot.

EDIT: Don't worry about it. I've figured out what caused the problem (I think)

During repairs I tried lots of things including restoring registry hives and lots of other stuff. Anyway nothing worked but when I managed to stop the startup repair loop one error message mentioned that Windows could'nt boot because of a corrupt CI.dll file. Obviously I tried to replace it but even my backup copies (all of them) gave this error message when attempting to copy or rename them. C:\CIdll is corrupt.

Anyway the updates just showed up again so I downloaded them without installing. Guess what shows up in the list of files to install?

So I looked it up:

boot critical file C:\CI.dll is corrupt - Microsoft Community

Quote:
While Windows' repair tool mentions it as the cause, CI.dll IS NOT THE PROBLEM.
The problem is a virus in the HDD Master Boot Record.
So I'm hoping that the update will install okay. I've just tested CI.dll and can copy/ paste/ rename it without any issues so maybe the system image rollback got rid of the culprit.

EDIT: Better check MBR before installing updates. Nothing shows up.

Nice catch ethel, no, you weren't wrong, I grabbed the wrong link, here's a better one: WUC Search results for "4012215" I'll fix the other one.
