    Any news on KB2993651 as to install or not?

    Just curious if anyone has had problems with kb2993651 ( the reissued patch for kb2982791 ). It's almost update tuesday so was wondering if things are safe yet.
    I originally updated kb2982791 on 3 computers, 2 win 7 x64's and 1 win 7 x86 and had no problems. I just uninstalled kb2982791 on the x86 computer and thought that I better see what the general consensus is before going any further.

    Lumpy,

    Seems to be working OK on my Win 8.1 Update 1 Desktop and on 2 Win 7 HP installs on my laptop. HTH

    Agreed. Just gt the update installed on 2 of my desktops. So far so good.

    Well I took the plunge. I uninstalled kb2982791 on the x86 computer and 1 of the x64 computers so far and installed kb2993651. So far all is ok other than it seems to take a little bit longer to load windows now, nothing drastic though, just noticeable.
    Guess I'll do the other x64 computer tomorrow.
    Thanks for the replies.

    KB2993651 installed and worked fine on my Vista/Win7 machines. also installed KB2993651 on my dad's Toshiba laptop with Win8.1 and no problems encountered there.

    btw, KB2993651 is NOW a pre-requisite update before installing the KB2970228 update as noted in Microsoft KB article 2970228.

    I didn't install 2970228 since I really have no use for the addition of the Russian ruble and it's optional. Good info to know though for anyone that needs it.
