    A few glitches with July Windows/Office updates




    PATCH WATCH

    A few glitches with July Windows/Office updates


    By Susan Bradley

    Applying July's Patch Tuesday security updates proved a bit rough for some IE and Vista/Win7 Tablet PC users. In some cases, the solution was to remove the update; in others, it meant installing a patch for the patch.

    Susan, I have several items I hope you will follow-up:
    1) I have not found a subsequent install or skip for KB2862330, and it no longer is on the chart. Your last recommendation was to HOLD.
    2) Could you advise on KB3973351?
    3) Finally, I purchased a 64-bit W7 Pro computer early this year. There are no matches for KB2677070 when I search installed updates. When I try to download the update I get a message saying it is not appropriate for my computer. Is it possible it's preloaded but not in my installed updates history?
    Many thanks!

    The update seems to be 2 years old, may be included in the Service Pack.

    The KB doesn't show individually on my Win7 Ult 64-bit.

    Looks like some folks had trouble with it and some didn't, I didn't.
