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.

It also improves performance when you wake the computer and when the computer is asleep.

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.
