Feel free to add how Windows 8 refused to work properly when GeForce drivers were installed when used with a touchscreen panel. It would cause a memory error and refuse to allow access to change the user passwords right out of the box. Oh! And how it somehow magically ends up failing sfc when updates were applied right out of the box. Microsoft Windows 8 is a worse blunder than Vista could have ever hoped to be.Posted via Firefox in Ubuntu Linux 13.04
I'm pretty sure most people that visit this site don't need this but just in case:
For KB 2760411, KB 2760588, and KB 2760583:
1. Go to start button, click it.
2. Click Control Panel.
3. Click Windows Update.
4. Underneath the yellow shield, click the blue text that indicates the number of important updates that are available.
5. Uncheck the the boxes next to those updates.
6. Right click on each update and choose hide update
7. Click ok, and close out the remaining window.
Windows will not offer these updates again.
Until Microsoft addresses this issue, I believe this is the only way to work around the issue at this time.
This explains a lot.
I had the "updates keep being offered" problem, and I do NOT have Office on my comp. I DID have the various viewers for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files.
Notice I said did. I re-installed LibreOffice, which should be fine for the very rare occasions I need to see those files.
