Funny photo that many can relate to.


So the good news is that Microsoft has extended the time for consumers  and those not behind WSUS/Config manager or Intune to get KB2919355 installed.  It’s now June as the drop dead date.


But I’m still concerned that Microsoft is losing some good data points as to the root cause of these errors. 


There is clearly something happening to these systems that is causing system corruption. 


As you can see by my comment on this post – http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/microsoft-extends-windows-81-update-1-install-deadline-30-days-0 his post just made me mad.


The folks that can’t get this update are not stubborn, they can’t get the dang thing installed.

Bottom line both Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 r2 have until June for unmanaged systems to get this update installed.  Those behind WSUS/Config/Intune have until August.  Those still running Windows 8 have until 2016 to get 8.1 installed.
