If memory serves, the first update was removed because users did not follow a correct installation procedure.
Just for discussion, once you download the file and before you installed it, did you disconnect from the internet, run your malware programs, defragged your discs, shut down and rebooted, shut down all your programs other than what Windows needs to have running and only then install the update? Sounds like a lot but it really saves time in the long run. I recently tried an update to another program without doing the steps and I had conflicts. I removed the update, did all of the above and the update installed properly.
