    Microsoft Windows 10, Server 2016 patching error borks users' systems

    A problem with the way that Microsoft released some of this week's Patch Tuesday updates caused some users' PCs and servers to blue screen, hang and/or fail to reboot.

    Microsoft issued for Windows 10 1703 (Windows 10 Creators Update), Windows 10 1607 (Windows 10 Anniversary Update) and Windows Server 2016 caused havoc for a number of business customers who deployed them as part of the October 10 Patch Tuesday release. The updates causing the problems after installation were KB4041676 and KB4041691.

    It apparently was not the patches themselves, but the fact Microsoft accidentally published to Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and System Center Configuration Manager both Cumulative and Delta updates that could be installed on machines together that caused the problems. As Microsoft doesn't publish Delta updates to Microsoft Update, this problem shouldn't have affected consumers, given they don't use WSUS and Configuration Manager.

    As Microsoft explained in an article on its site, "If you approve and deploy the same version of the Delta and Cumulative update, you will not only generate additional network traffic since both will be downloaded to the PC, but you may not be able to reboot your computer to Windows after restart."

    There are steps those affected can take to get their systems working again that are detailed in that same article on the Microsoft site...

    Mine booted fine but I got three sudden reboots, no BSOD, no minidump, no warning, in a few hours. I did an un-install which was partially successful - it said not all updates were successfully removed, but so far after many hours of use no problem.

    OK, I just did a restore from the backup I made right after the update and was able to undo the update with no problems. Looks like those sudden reboots had done some damage to the base OS. Let's see if the reboots don't happen now.

    After installing KB4041676

    After installing KB4041676 there were no problems. But when I booted the computer from the Acronis CD to make a backup copy, there was a spontaneous reboot without BSOD, bypassing the BIOS settings. After that, the system did not detect any damage, but there was a constant overheating of the computer by 10-12 degrees. I could not find the reason. The thermopaste is fresh.

    Since MS released W10 the quality of Windows Updates (all versions) has been awful.

    If MS hadn't sacked 1000s of workers, maybe they would be able to release properly tested updates.

    These days updating is like playing Russian Roulette using a 6 shot revolver loaded with 5 bullets.
