Brink post one every month or even out of cycle updates :)
March 10th 2015 Windows Updates
Hmm, it's posted under the News section rather than the Updates section. No wonder I missed it! My earlier comment stands, it's usual for someone to pose the question here as to how the updates are going, and people give their feedback.

Thanks for the info.

KB3033929 fails for me and goes into multiple reboots until it can finally unwind itself. Lots of others appear to be having problems with this SHA-2 signing patch. My system is dual boot using a grub2 bootloader, which seems to be a common theme, though some without a custom bootloader also have complained. Will have to wait for MS to fix this one for dual boot systems (if they do).

The only other thing I've read about that update is that it goes with KB 3035131 which must be installed first. Did you install them separately and if so in the correct order? If installed together by Windows then they should automatically be installed in the right order.

If you google KB3033929 you'll see several articles (Krebs, Infoworld, and MS's Technet) where people are reporting essentially the same thing I described. For many, the patch will not apply on dual boot systems and causes boot loops. The other patch you mentioned applied successfully (and prior to KB3033929) on my machine.

I saw an article at http://www.komando.com/happening-now...tical-bugs-now advising not to install KB3033929 until M$ issues a patch.

I'm about to install my Updates today. Would it be advisable to hide "KB3033929"

I successfully installed these dozen updates on a couple/three computers before, but today tried another computer and the updates failed after maybe three. I'd have guessed the problem one was for IE11 KB3032359 but don't doubt it was more likely 3033929.

In any case, I'd gotten two successfully installed and then the rest failed, and did so in spectacular fashion i.e. no amount of reboots/retries worked after. I did a System Restore to the first one (of the updates), effectively starting-over, and after a number of subsequent fails and retries finally got them all installed

Then I came here to report and found this thread!

Don't hide that KB, but if you want to try the updates just de-select that one and see if you have any trouble (and report back).

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
