MS pulls & recommends uninstalling KB 2823324?

Quote:
Tech giant Microsoft has recommended that an update released in the latest Patch Tuesday be removed, after users reported incidents of the "blue screen of death" after installation.
Microsoft released two critical security updates and others rated as "important" for Windows and Internet Explorer as part of its latest round of Patch Tuesday updates.
However, a number of Windows 7 users have reported issues with security update 2823324, which is part of security bulletin MS13-036.

Everything is working fine on all 3 of my rigs (Windows 7/64 X 2 and Windows 7/32 X 1) with 2823324 installed.

>>"If it ain't broke...." -- leave it installed or uninstall, as Redmond recommends???<<

EDIT: OOPS! I missed this earlier post -- sorry! Stop error in Windows 7 after you install security update 2823324

Interesting. I uninstalled it and it was immediately re-offered so they haven't made a very good job of it. I'll just hide it.

I have it installed on 2 machines, one has had zero problems. The other one's Norton got snafu-ed though but "fixed itself".

Two days ago I had the ¿¿¿great??? idea of downloading updates for Windows, and yesterday I had 2 crashes (no BSOD however). May that be a coincidence? I've just uninstalled it now, maybe it helps.
But yet another example of how Windows updates gives more problems than it solves.

I still don't know what programs this KB might effect or whether every one is recommended to remove it.
I'm having all kinds of goofy problems with FF20 and MAM. I'M wondering if this KB can be causing them.
Thank you MoxieMomma for the information.
Does just removing the KB hurt anything?

If you scroll down in that MS article, you'll see that certain Kaspersky enterprise products are mentioned.
I don't know if there are others.
I run KIS2013 (consumer version) on all 3 Windows 7 rigs and had no problems, but KL has been looking into it: Compatibility of KIS2013 MP1 and Windows Update - Kaspersky Lab Forum

Yes, it does seem that MS is recommending that everyone uninstall it (see the linked MS article).

What is MAM?
If you mean Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM), there are no known issues of which I am aware (just a frequent poster at MBAM forum and active lurker at Mozillazine forum).

You are most welcome.

Since you have a few thousand more posts here than I do, I might be asking you the same question?

But that's why I've posted -- waiting to hear from the local gurus, such as NoelDP, Tom982, Brink and the other REALLY smart folks.

It seems that some folks can uninstall it OK, while others are being re-offered it again as soon as they do so (unless they hide it).

So, waiting for expert input before I uninstall....

Cheers!

Uninstall the update, Microsoft will reissue the update of ntfs.sys anyway, and this update will be superseded if it remains installed - and you will end up with an extra update you don't need.

I think it has effectively been pulled 2 and a half hours ago. If you still see it, re-check. If you see it after that, you might have to erase the contents of the Software Distribution folder.

Just to add, I uninstalled it, I don't see it anymore, and I haven't hidden it.

For those like Kado897:
When they re-issue it - will it be under the same KB number?
If so, will you get it if you have hidden that KB?

I suspect that it takes a while for the order to pull the KB to propagate to all of the regional servers being uses to provide Windows Updates. I'm not seeing it offered after uninstalling it from a VM.

A hidden KB will not reapply. If they reissue I hope it will be a new KB.

That is the reason I use MAM.

MoxieMomma I also know that I don't know everything so I do ask question.
My backup computer is down at this time. If it was working I would do a test using it. I don't care to do testing with only my main computer working at this time. So I ask questions.
Removing the KB probably would not hurt anything but I'm a bit cautious under my circumstances at this time.
