Windows Update Causing Internet Explorer to Crash – KB3008923

microsoft black logo

After Microsoft released a bunch of updates this week that broke Excel, today we ran into issues with their updates breaking Internet Explorer!

After some more updates were released through our WSUS server to client machines, users started to experience Internet Explorer crashes on load up making the browser virtually unusable.

So, having to then spend more hours searching for todays culprit, we found that the update causing the issue is this one:

KB3008923

So, what can you do to fix it?

The simple solution is that you have to uninstall it, but you should also ensure that you have declined it in your WSUS or SCCM or other popular Windows Update system and if you are using SCCM, you could create a task sequence to remove it en masse.

If you need to know the command line for removing this update, you should try this:

 C:WindowsSystem32wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:3008923/quiet /norestart
