    An interesting thread, while I think most points were covered, one may have been overlooked.

    That would be to install the Win8 system (8 or 8.1 or 8.1 Pro) in a separate partition. That would be...

    Susan Bradley has given me an assist that somewhat convinces me the issue is unique to my system. An earlier responder thought the association with the Flash Player was coincidental, and though I...

    Susan: thanks for sticking with this. I will dig out the log and email it to you.

    To further research this, I uninstalled KB2926765, then installed it again. This time, no effect with regard to...

    In response to the "coincidental" happening, I don't think so. When KB2926765 was removed (uninstalled) the first time, I also uninstalled Flash Player 13.

    Later, I allowed Windows Update to...

    I just updated my other Win7 32-bit system, and KB2926765 installed correctly with no issues. I suspect a change has been made to the patch, or perhaps this Win7 partition, which is a clean install...

    I went to my Win8.1 system, downloaded & installed updates, but did KB2926765 separate from the Adobe Flash Player update. All went well. Installing the Flash update later also worked fine.

    All feedback is appreciated.

    A point has been missed from above. When KB2926765 was installed by Windows Update, that change installed Flash Player 13. If this is a Windows Shell handler patch,...

    Update: in reading the material for KB2926765, it applies only to those systems that have KB2919355 installed.

    KB2919355 is a Win8 fix. I am attempting to run Windows Update on Win7.

    Thus,...
