Windows August 2015 Security Update Release Summary


Well something has changed for the better in the last couple of hours. For the umpteenth time I've restored an image to trouble shoot this issue, in fact an image from 6th Aug, and guess what !!!! It suddenly works straight off. The number of hoops I've jumped through trying to get a handle on this is unreal... its been many many hours. Fwiw, a clean install would update out of the box, I proved that today and also a few days back. A clean install with SP1 and SP2 installed from the standalone installers would not update and the PC was rendered unusable due to 100% CPU/RAM usage.

What really and totally confused me was that this issue showed on the very day I acquired a new router and connected to it.
