Microsoft have yet again released another Windows Update which has caused corruption and crashing on Windows computers. We have particularly hit with issues on Windows 7 machines. Although there are reported issues with Server 2008 R2 as well.
So, having spent a few hours searching for todays culprit, we found that the update causing the issue is this one:
We have seen a number of different problems that these updates are causing but our main issue seems to be with RAID and NIC driver issues. In particular the RAID driver with it causing the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).
Since posting this, we have also found problems with two other updates which we have posted about here – might be worth checking those out as well if you are continuing to have any problems.
So, what can you do to fix it?
The simple quick fix 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. You could also use the Approved but for Uninstall in WSUS.
The full correct fix will be for Microsoft to fix it and stop breaking our machines and servers!
If you need to know the command line for removing this update, you should try this just changing the KB reference where required.
C:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:KB4093118 /quiet /norestart
