    FYI: On last shut down of system on 9-24-2012(win7 ultimate) windows update installed KB2538243. When starting system back up several hours later, window's would not start. Started in safe mode, used system restore, all ok for now! Checked recent updates and found that the above update "failed to install" and was the only update listed. Anyone else have similiar problem.
    Thanks in advance.......

    You are not the only one. If you don't use Microsoft Visual C++, just uninstall it.
