I and another user have had problems recently with windows updates, which we both think were due to KB3046002. Personally I found it failed when I tried to install it amngst a bunch of other updates, then failed at the point of download when I tried to install it again after the restart from those other updates, and then when I tried to use windows update troubleshooter to fix this windows update became unable to check for updates at all. Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing, recently, can anyone be sure if it was this update to blame or perhaps another one, or just a random unlucky occurence?
This update is a security one for protecting against some form of remote code execution attacks (specifically ones involving windows journal) so it's not one which users want to go without, and if it is buggy someone needs to contact microsoft and report this issue.
I fixed my issues with windows update but haven't yet tried reinstalling this one again, I'm trying it again shortly. I don't know if the other user http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576092/windows-update-kb3046002/
was so lucky and able to get everything working again.
Reports of whether others have had problems would be helpful.
