    I hid KB3000061 and KB2984972 as they were the ones purportedly causing the problems on Win 7 x64.

    @stapp and mantra:

    You're welcome :).

    Regarding the October 28 release of System Update Readiness Tool: that is a non-new tool that Microsoft periodically updates. This tool is offered to users in those situations where Windows Update believes there is an issue that System Update Readiness Tool can fix.

    You're welcome. I usually wait a week or so before installing any MS updates. I check a few sites to see if anyone reports anything borking, InfoWorld is often one of them. The past couple of months I have normally posted here to see what's happening with the Patch/Bork Tuesdays.

    I just don't trust Microsoft anymore. I've even switched operating systems on my (originally Vista) laptop. It now runs Ubuntu. My desktop PC still runs Win 7. Vista updates were usually horrendous requiring several re-boots.

    No, as there indeed is such a list. My comment was a response to the update that is scheduled for October 28.

    That update appears only for those computers that Windows Update believes may need it.
