My original problem was; Installing the KB2761465 patch, after rebooting, and just before the lock screen opened for the login the DVI connector icon would flash in the top left corner, and would go out, and then back on in an endless loop.
I had an image from the night before so I was able to test.
What I found in my case was; I had previously installed;
At the end of my testing I found that if I tried to uninstall any portion of the '8style_skin_pack-x64_win8.exe' pack the same symptom would occur. This happened without even installing the KB2761465 patch.
Not real sure why the KB2761465 patch failed but it included files that updated the iexplorer and the uxtheme. I tried for about an hour to remove the '8style_skin_pack-x64_win8.exe' pack and UXTheme patch, with no luck.
I figured 2 hours was enough time to spend on this, so I preformed a new install in order to fix it. I was also having video problems, which the new install fixed.
Note to self; Keep the first full good image, just incase I need to go back that far...
