    Same here. Downloaded and installed with no issues. However, it didn't resolve my particular connectivity issue (when i try to access my homegroup for the first time, I drop connectivity and have to reset the wifi adapter) though in all fairness, nothing MS lists in their fix list pertains to any issues I'm experiencing. So, here's hoping this is one of several updates we see to smooth out some of the rocks in the road.

    This update rolls back the display drivers yet again.

    Don't bother me with updates until it lets me run my tablet and external monitor at independent zoom levels. THEN I'll be interested. Oh yeah and also having the keyboard pop up immediately when i enter a text field in a desktop app. Also give me an option to turn off the stupid dot under the pen.

    Wow. All my Metro apps and even the store seem to launch almost instantly. Also, I read that this update fixes the Limited Connectivity wifi issue so I switched to my N network and sure enough, it hasn't dropped yet :) Way to go MS!

    Edit: It dropped :(

    I did this update this morning.
    5 times in the last 4 or 5 hours, I have put my SP to sleep using the power button. When I come back, the unit is really hot and it won't wake up.
    I have to hold down the power button to shut it off and then power it back up.

    It was sleeping and waking fine prior to the update.

    Anyone else getting a similar problem?

    [edit]
    So, thinking was a power related problem preventing the SP from sleeping, I went digging around and put a tick back in the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option of the network adaptor properties.
    I unticked it a while ago when trying to troubleshoot a connection problem.

    Now my SP is sleeping and waking correctly, and cooling down whilst asleep.
    I'll leave that option ticked and see if everything stays happy.

    If you updated the latest drivers from the intel site last week, this hardware update will roll them back to the OEM version released dec. of last year.

    For me it didn't remove the intel 4000 driver but HAS broken the trackpad setting metro app!

    Anyone else?

    No changes to my trackpad settings, either; it remains disabled.
