Microsoft Windows 10, Server 2016 patching blunder borks users’ systems

A problem with a approach that Microsoft expelled some of this week’s Patch Tuesday updates caused some users’ PCs and servers to blue screen, hang and/or destroy to reboot.

Updates Microsoft released for Windows 10 1703 (Windows 10 Creators Update), Windows 10 1607 (Windows 10 Anniversary Update) and Windows Server 2016 caused massacre for a series of business business who deployed them as partial of a Oct 10 Patch Tuesday release. The updates causing a problems after designation were KB4041676 and KB4041691.

It apparently was not a rags themselves, though a fact Microsoft incidentally published to Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and System Center Configuration Manager both Cumulative and Delta updates that could be commissioned on machines together that caused a problems. As Microsoft doesn’t tell Delta updates to Microsoft Update, this problem shouldn’t have influenced consumers, given they don’t use WSUS and Configuration Manager.

As Microsoft explained in an essay on a site, “If we approve and muster a same chronicle of a Delta and Cumulative update, we will not usually beget additional network trade given both will be downloaded to a PC, though we might not be means to reboot your mechanism to Windows after restart.”

There are steps those influenced can take to get their systems operative again that are minute in that same essay on a Microsoft site.

Another site,, has some additional options for those who can’t reboot after both a Cumulative and Delta updates were practical together. This one, WorkingHardinIT.Work, stairs by regulating DISM (the Deployment Image Servicing and Management command-line tool) to mislay a updates.

Users should request a Cumulative Updates usually and not a Delta updates. Customers should transparent a cache on WSUS so a Delta updates won’t appear.

I’ve asked Microsoft for serve information as to who was influenced and any other additional stairs it is advising users to take. In response, a orator sent a following statement:

“Some business might have gifted issues in Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) deployment of KB 4041676 and KB 4041691, that has been resolved. Most business accept updates from Windows and Microsoft Update, and were not affected.”
