Bad patch causes blue screen - and how to remove it!

Yesterday we helped several customers automate the removal of a bad patch from Microsoft. Here are the details about the patch: 

Microsoft Tells Users to Uninstall Troublesome Windows 7 Patch (April 12, 2013)

Microsoft is urging users to uninstall a patch it released last week after some reported that it was causing blue screen of death errors on Windows 7 computers. The bulletin in question is MS01-036, which addressed a total of four vulnerabilities. Microsoft has removed the patch, security update 28383324, from the bulletin. The update was designed to fix an issue that had been given a moderate severity rating.

To accomplish this task, you can ue the Run System Command job in Servoyant with the following command line:

wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:2823324 /quiet /norestart

We also declined this patch on the Servoyant WSUS servers to prevent further installtions of this patch.

Our scripting team is currently working on a nice job specific to patch removal that will allow you to just specify the KB number.
