    Pulled patch from August now back on Windows Update


    Microsoft has started pushing a patch which was pulled earlier in the month for causing boot failures, after fixing the bug.

    The patch which was part of the August update was reported to have been a cause of boot failures and BSODs by some Windows users, which caused Microsoft to pull the update from being rolled out as part of the August update.
    The kernel-mode security update KB2982791 had a total of three known issues which included the locking down of the fonts folder in Windows, incorrect rendering of system fonts on Windows 8, 8.1, 8.1 RT and Server 2012 R2. However, it was recently reported that hardly 0.01% of the total Windows user base actually faced these issues after the update.

    The problem is that the consumer is not made aware to uninstall the KB2982791 before installing the new KB2993651. It just appears in Windows Update with no mention of uninstalling anything.

    Microsoft Says Windows 7 BSOD Bug Fix Has Bugs

    Microsoft rolled out this morning a revised version of MS14-045, the August bulletin that caused so many problems to Windows 7 users, but this time the company promises to address all issues and provide a much smoother updating experience.


    Information posted in the updated description of the bulletin reveals that some known issues with this update have also been confirmed, and in some cases could also be experienced by users.

    First of all, Microsoft says, after installing the newly launched KB2993651, some users might spot problems with system fonts.

    “After you install this security update, fonts that are installed in a location other than the default fonts directory (%windir%\fonts\) cannot be changed when they are loaded into any active session. Attempts to change, replace, or delete these fonts are blocked, and a ‘File in use’ message is displayed,” the company says, without also providing a fix for the problem.

    At the same time, the window of some of your running applications could become invisible, but Microsoft guarantees that a fix for this bug will be released very soon.

    Its no big deal.

    “Microsoft strongly recommends that customers who have not uninstalled the 2982791 update do so prior to applying the 2993651 update. Customers do not need to uninstall the expired 2982791 update before applying the 2993651 update; however, Microsoft strongly recommends it. Customers who do not remove the expired update will retain a listing for 2982791 under installed updates in Control Panel,” the company says in a statement.
