Finding a Microsoft KB in a Cumulative Update

El Tarf stromectol buy us • Windows patches linked to Knowledge Base articles or MS bulletins roll up and become unavailable as a hot-fix/single update file and go into a cumulative update. This can pose an issue when your Deployment system like SCCM or BigFix no longer have the update to push to machines since they follow Microsoft’s patch catalog for which old updates get rolled up and removed. This can become an issue when your trying to force patch machines that may become vulnerable to malware that the patch can fix and you can’t readily find what patch to use since the KB originally able to fix a vulnerability is now no longer available for single update.
• Although keeping all machines up to date is best practice it can become an issue when legacy applications begin to break and when if settings allow users to delay updates it’s likely a population of un-patched machines will arise.
• Windows 10 patches are normally fixed in new versions so updating works but if you want to see if you can find a KB or MSXX-xxxx bulletin you can search the known cumulative updates

Microsoft KB3114717 Issue

Funny how we have to protect ourselves from Microsoft’s own mishaps along with malicious software,oblivious users and all the like… But that’s the IT game.

And so it happens; Your users start to experience freezing across their Microsoft office programs out of nowhere and you need to become a detective. In my experience this has always been because of a recent update that has been applied to your organizations computers. Not sure how everyone else goes about applying updates but in this case It is controlled by a WDS server and then further controlled by System Center Configuration Manager. After checking the sites device collections I found that all affected computers were within the collection that receives all of the most recent Microsoft updates. Upon further research I found that it was linked to installed KB3114717 recently pushed by microsoft on 02/09/2016(Feburary’s Patch Tuesday 2016)

Uninstall this KB and walla; issues gone. Just another thing to look out for and another great reason to put together a Microsoft WDS server that will control which updates to push. This combined with Update groups and Device Collections in SCCM makes isolating and keeping machines from being patched to only a minimum which will serve to keep user outcry to only the selected test machines. Afterwards we just move that affected KB into a “do not deploy” group and collect the rest for deployment to the entire domain of computers.

If your reading this and just need to know how to uninstall it manually use this quick little guide:

Narón legit online poker Start Menu > Search Bar > type ‘appwiz.cpl’ > click “View Installed Updates” > Search for KB3114717 in the upper right hand corner of the Pane> Find it and uninstall itkbuninstal

As always make sure the users run with the programs for a day before you mark this issue as resolved.
