Win8 upgrade do-over
« on: August 17, 2014, 11:56:23 AM »

I follow Windows IT Pro through Feedspot RSS and WinIT pro has three posts regarding the July and August Win8 updates from Microsoft.
They post the instructions of what to do, where to do it, how to get it and I'd take a look now!
The above link will take you to the Windows IT Pro site as posted by Feedspot.
Have fun  :D

I'm just getting started but it sure sounds like fun... Whoopee  :huh:

I'm surprised! Win IT pro seems to be the only one with the story that I can find.

MS is supposed to post a fix as an optional update in Win8.
I haven't got anything in updates..... Jul and Aug updates were installed on the 13th.

Hell,maybe  I've got a scoop   :P

regarding the July and August Win8 updates

This looks like a lot of hoopla about nothing!
I have only one of the four supposedly bad updates, that was an optional, I'm working fine as it........ :huh:
Shadow say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
The Shadow knows ........ 8)

More info as it comes in will be posted   :D

Some relief for the idly curious about The Shadow mentioned above:

Quote
The introduction from The Shadow radio program "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" spoken by actor Frank Readick Jr., has earned a place in the American idiom. These words were accompanied by an ominous laugh and a musical theme, Camille Saint-Saƫns' Le Rouet d'Omphale ("Omphale's Spinning Wheel", composed in 1872). At the end of each episode The Shadow reminded listeners that, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay... The Shadow knows!"

Wikipedia has more about The Shadow.... :P
