    MS still struggling with Windows Media fix


    By Susan Bradley

    It seems Microsoft is still trying to get right a Windows Media update first released in July. Plus, ongoing issues with a Windows-kernel update reveal operating-system piracy, and some side effects from a Windows 8 rollup update.

    I've been holding off KB 2859537 on both my main PC and laptop, despite constant prompting. Somehow, this week it's installed itself on both without my selecting it. I can't be sure if I mistakenly installed it or whether Windows Update got fed up with my procrastination and did it anyway.

    I received no BSODs, but on one machine Malwarebytes Pro came up with error messages, even after I reinstalled it. When I rebooted, I discovered the update was taking effect and Malwarebytes ran okay after that.
