Microsoft Telling Users to Uninstall Faulty Security Update

It's usually a good idea to install Windows updates as they become available every Patch Tuesday so you can stay one step ahead of the bad guys. Unfortunately, things can wrong every once in awhile, as they did with the most recent batch of updates. After installing the patches, some users complained of system instabilities and blue screen errors. What gives?

"We are aware that some of our customers may be experiencing difficulties after applying security update 2823324, which we provided in security bulletin MS13-036 on Tuesday, April 9," Microsoft stated in a blog post. "We’ve determined that the update, when paired with certain third-party software, can cause system errors. As a precaution, we stopped pushing 2823324 as an update when we began investigating the error reports, and have since removed it from the download center."

Windows Update

In addition to instability issues, the update could also cause Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers to stop functioning, Microsoft says. In light of all this, the Redmond company recommends uninstalling the update if you already grabbed it. You can find detailed instructions on how to do so on Microsoft's support article KB2839011.

How do I uninstall if they do not have directions to do that? It shows I have successfully installed the update and I have restarted the system. DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING. JUST because windows 8 is not doing well, does not mean windows 7 users deserve this. My situation is not listed in the fixes. IF I should do nothing then put that in the article for my situation so I do not worry or try to do something I am not qualified to do.

Hi James .. and welcome to HH .. if your system {windows 7] is running fine, even with the update installed and you would like to remove it, which has been recommended to avoid future issues.

Head over to the Control Panel > Program Features > View Installed Updates> Microsoft Windows >Look for Security Update 2823324 and uninstall it ! > Reboot and its gone.
