Users report problems with important Windows 8 update (fixed)
Numerous users around the web are reporting that the latest update to Microsoft’s recently released operating system, Windows 8 is failing. The update that can be identified as ‘KB2770917′ is a cumulative update for November of this year. The update is provided as an important update and fixes several issues including a bug that prevents some Windows Store Apps from being installed fully. It also improves performance when you wake the computer and when the computer is asleep.
A search on the update shows that users around the world seem to suffer from the issue. Some users report that Windows doesn’t start anymore and requires a System Restore. Others report that the installation of the update simply fails. For those who use the automatic update option of Windows 8, it’s also possible to download the update files manually from here.
Update: This seems to fix the issue.
