W7 Pro 32bit

Hi @ThrashZone,

Need your expert opinion.

1. Installed using the 3 manual updates.

2. Ran sfc scan, as before gave corrupt file error, repaired..

3. Activated online.

4. Just to check, whether KB3181988 could fix.

5. Disconnected from internet.

6. Ran KB3181988, as standalone, ran sfc again, no integrity violation.

7. Reconnected to internet, ran check for updates, to my utter surprise, only have 39 Optional vs earlier 73, and only 38 Important, which does not have KB3181988.

My question is, did I rush to install KB3181988, should I have waited till the end OR should it have been installed before activation, after KB3125574 and before KB3172605 OR it doesn't matter? KB3181988 does not show in the 38 list of Important updates?

Shall wait to hear from you, before installing these 38 W7 Important and a few Optional one of the 39...

Thanks again for getting hold of this small but important update, its a big help indeed. :)

Last I would imagine would be appropriate :)

You mentioned last, I installed it early after activation, should it make a difference or no....I feel it shouldn't matter, but still trying to be cautious, since the install looks perfect.

Thanks again!
