No matter what I try, that recent major update pack / feature pack / service pack for Windows 8.1 absolutely point blank
refuses to install on my main PC. It fails with the standard Windows Update method through which all the other updates
are usually delivered, and it falls at the first with the standalone MSU files downloaded seperately from Microsoft..
It installed fine on my laptop, and also installed it on my media centre PC ... that only needs a reboot and it's done.
But on the PC I use the most, it won't install at all. I wouldn't mind too much, except for the fact that TPTB at Redmond
have decreed that any Windows 8.1 user won't receive any more updates if this big update isn't installed first. So my
installation of Microsoft's latest OS is about to become as insecure as the old OS that was very recently killed off!
