Microsoft recommends removing a security update

Recommended Posts

I don't know how many of you have updated the 14 updates on Tuesday from Microsoft but once I did I had my desktop take a system dump. Well it is in the shop but the laptop accepted them and also did one system dump but recovered. Maybe coincidence maybe not.

At any event received the usual Microsoft security update message today and they want us to remove the following:

After removal it showed in the update area as a new update until this morning and is now removed. It could have been hardware on my unit but seeing both computers had system dumps I found that rather odd.

Microsoft releases 'Silver Bullet' patch KB 3024777 to eliminate KB 3004394

http://www.infoworld.com/article/2859115/microsoft-windows/microsoft-releases-silver-bullet-patch-kb-3024777-to-eliminate-botched-patch-kb-3004394.html

When I checked installed WU list, KB3004394 is still showing as successful install. However, when I checked my list of installed programs in Control Panel after applying KB3024777, KB3004394 is no longer listed as an installed update.

I found the same thing to happen.
