Hi,

 

To help others b/c I just wasted 2-3 hours of my time & may still have to spend more time.

 

As USUAL with Window 8 BLEEPING UPDATES, it has screwed with my computer. This is an ONGOING issue every time there is an update & even sometimes with Windows 7.

 

This time after the update every 2-10 minutes I'd hear that ding sound you get like the asterick, when a new program is trying to access your Windows, etc.

 

I wasn't able to fix it & finally someone searched online & someone mentioned that it may be one of 3 pieces of software. Since I also use Malwarebytes, I decided to open it & sure enough, it wouldn't open.

 

After trying multiple times, I finally uninstalled it & the sound is gone.

 

HATE WINDOWS even more then I disliked them before. XP was ALWAYS WONDERFUL, it never screwed around with my computer.

 

I just spent almost an hour fixing VPN/DNS issues all b/c of this update.

 

HTH

My first thought is....was this a for real Windows update.

 

Open Windows Update manually and see if that update is listed.

 

Then there is this: Microsoft ships replacement patch KB 2993651 with two known bugs | Microsoft windows - InfoWorld

How do I get to that area. I see check for updates or turn it off/on & I don't want to click on those for obvious reasons.

 

Thanks

Here's one way: Quick way to find out installed updates on your Windows 8  (other methods are mentioned in the replies)

 

Want to quickly find out the installed updates on your Windows computer?

Press Win+R, paste the following and hit Enter.

C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{d450a8a1-9568-45c7-9c0e-b4f9fb4537bd}

You will see the list of installed updates on your Windows PC.

Thank you for that.

 

Ok, I'm confused. It says Aug. 13th, but the message on the desktop login screen said my Windows will restart for updates within 2 days. It must have updated something otherwise I wouldn't have had that problem & MBAM was working prior to the reboot.

Did you read the article I linked to? I read some of it. After reading that I am at a loss to offer any suggestion on what

update should be deleted...not deleted...or what problems or bugs now are occurring due to the latest patch.

 

Maybe someone else will have figured it all out. Otherwise, you might want to wait and see what Microsoft's next move is.

That is if the computer is not experiencing more problems.
