  1. New today and is failing error 80092004

    Heads-up - - I would defer attempting to installing this for a while.

    btw: it's related to IE 11 on Win/7 sp1 32/64 bit

    Secondary issue: Some portion of today's update disabled my wifi.

    System is Win/7 SP1 64bit Dell.

    Recovery was to use the control->programs & features
    select Dell Wifi and click REPAIR.

    Additional info from infoworld.com:

    Those users who do manage to get the patch installed are reporting an even more troubling problem: Once you've installed KB 3038314 on PCs with either Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 Update 1, you can't add Google as a search provider.

    Call me pessimistic but that seems deceptively and maliciously on purpose. Question though, is it just Google or does it effect other search engines?

    I use Bing so honestly it doesn't effect me. But that doesn't mean I don't care.

    "you can't add Google as a search provider." Personally, I disable all search providers and just place a bookmark on the tool bar - - that gives me control :)
