Reboot Wednesday: Yesterday's Patch Tuesday Aftermath

We have a couple of issues people reported with yesterday's Microsoft patches. Let us know if you experienced any of these issues, and what workaround you applied to get things back to normal:

KB2868116: Takes very long to install. Just sit back and wait (30-45 Minutes). This patch improves the content of warning messages, so it is somewhat security relevant, but does not patch an actual vulnerability.

KB2817630: Causes Outlook to loose all folders. No workaround other then removing the patch. This was not a security patch.

We will add to this list as we confirm any other issues. So far, there are some reports of the system re-applying the same patch over and over, but there are just one or two users reporting this, and in some cases the patch that causes it isn't identified.

Next: Office 2007 updates:
1.Security Fixes MS13-072 and MS13-073 MS13-074


Two security updates released yesterday MS13-072, MS13-073 and MS13-074, These are installing fine but if you scan the machine again for updates, show up again and again and again. Currently there is no fix available for these other than to say that the update is applied but it is not getting properly detected. The product group is aware of the issues and are working on it.

I rebooted after forty five minutes of watching KB2868116 do nothing on Windows 7 64-bit. No disk activity, no progress on the progress bar, nothing. "Takes very long to install. Just sit back and wait (30-45 Minutes)." may be an understatement.

Updates KB2760411, KB2760588, and KB2760583 will install repeatedly. Microsoft does not yet have a solution.

The KB entries on now include as a Known Issue:
"You may be repeatedly offered this update even though it is already installed. Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available"

This thread is a good collection of information:
