  1. Hello,
    I don't know if this is of concern, but better safe than sorry. Any feedback is appreciated.

    When scheduled updating occurred it said 'failed'. I haven't paid much attention to this before, but when I went in to view the updates I noticed the security update, which I'll paste below, has failed every time since late 2011. The only difference is the KB #'s are different. There are others as well, but that pertains to IE 9 and 10 and I believe mine is still 8.
