Microsoft Launches Patch to Remove Botched Updates

It’s a well-known fact that some of the updates released by Microsoft as part of every Patch Tuesday rollout actually cause more harm than good on a number of PCs, so the company then has to look into every report and develop a fix for its fix

This was the case with a patch KB3005628 for Windows 8, 8.1, Server 2012, and Server 2012 R2, which, although it might seem to bring new out-of-band improvements for these platforms, does nothing more than to remove some botched bulletins released by Microsoft in August.

Two months ago, as part of Patch Tuesday, the software giant released KB2966827 and KB2966828 to address some issues in multiple .NET Framework versions, including 2, 3, 3.5, and 3.5.1.

Soon after that, however, it emerged that both these patches were actually causing more problems on computers deploying them, so Microsoft decided to develop a fix that would actually remove all their files.

Patch KB3005628

Surprise patch KB 3005628 bodes ill for Microsoft's patching strategy

so today it's Patch Tuesday and Patch KB3005628 is one of the updates but Windows Update wants to keep installing it over and over again it says the install succeeded everytime

and i'm not alone

[Windows 8] KB3005628 keeps installing 8-KB3005628-keeps-installing

kb3005628 keeps installing

so a bad patch to fix 2 bad patches?
