Problems installing KB2770917 in Windows 8

I was having some problems installing Windows 8 KB2770917 update, it stopped at 15% and then it rolled back the installation. As being diagnosed as having CUD (Cumpulsory update disorder) I found a solution in Microsoft site:

Run msconfig (Windows+R, msconfig)
Go to Services
Select Hide all Microsoft services
Disable All non Microsoft services
Setup KB
reboot
run msconfig again, Services and  Enable all Services
reboot again to start the services
and it worked for me.
