Re: Microsoft Security Bulletin(s) for November 13 2012

Applied 16 patches to my Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit PC. A reboot was needed. No problems so far.



P.S.>> My windows 8 Pro laptop update taking forever to download patches. Not sure why Win 7 worked fast as usual, but Win 8 Update taking forever just to download the patches.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.

Article says the server is busy for too many requests. Try it later, in particular KB2770917 took a little while to download for me, it's probably huge since it's W8 cumulative update.

I had to go to Windows Download Center to install KB2769165 & KB2770917(multiple files) patches. They were timing out using Windows Update pgm. After downloading and installing, I reset the Windows Update database and cleared it using Windows Update Troubleshooter. A subsequent run of Windows Update shows everything now up to date. Not thrilled with the Win patch tuesday process for Win8. See how it goes next month.

I had two Win 7 Pro 64 bit systems that had just 12 updates, but this one had 16, and I believe they were the same as you listed. I think the difference is that the other systems did not have MS Office viewers installed.
