As is becoming very common, MS has released a bad update today. The current one sits there and never finishes. KB3001652 is something for Visual Studio 2010 which I do not have on my computer. But it got sent to me anyway. And it won't install. It just sits there with the "installing" message and the flickering bar. Clicking the "Stop Installation" button does nothing. It continues sitting there. Forcing a reboot with the big red switch also does nothing. When you then try to restart updates it goes back to the one it was idling at before and resumes idling. Why is this one NOT present in the list of updates when you check at the beginning so you can CANCEL it? It is now impossible to finish updates, many of which are security related and therefore important. How do you kill a useless update in Windows so that other updates can be installed?
