    I had the font rendering problem on one of my PCs. System fonts were reduced size. Removing KB2982791 has taken care of it.

    Common guys, it just happens to everybody, who tries to improve something. :)
    BTW: Maybe, that MS killed "Update 2 / W8-1-2" name intentionally knowing, that the update is piece of crap. :))

    I had to roll-back to a previous Restore-Point, as the Updates messed around with some of my apps, like Origin, which failed to start after installing the updates (0xc000007b).

    :(

    If you felt that your computer is having troubles with something than remove the following updates :

    1. KB2982791
    2. KB2970228
    3. KB2975719
    4. KB2975331

    But if your computer is alright just enjoy it.

    In case of troubles you should remove those three I have marked by bold text below (You will not meet the other ones in W8-x.):

    KB2975719 Pack = (KB2975719 + KB2990532)
    KB2982791
    KB2970228
    KB2975331

    • KB2975719 is one of the crucial parts of the update. Removing that will possibly remove large part of the patches.
