December 2017 Updates Interfere with Website Access in Internet Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our organization has recently deployed the December 2017 patches that included security updates for Internet Explorer. Many users with the new patches (including KB4052978, and KB4054518) have difficulty in accessing several different websites or portions of websites. The error that appears is the generic, "This page can't be displayed." This issue started immediately after installing the new patches, and is occurring in IE11 on machines running Windows 7, or Windows 10.

    On every PC with the issue, the same webpage will load in Chrome without any errors. The problem is, even after uninstalling the updates and rebooting, the issue persists, as if the uninstallation failed to set the reg keys back to the original state. The only fix working so far is to rollback to a system restore point pre-patch installation.

    Has anyone experienced a similar issue this month?

  • Yes! Most of my favorites web sites will not open after installing 2017-12 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (kb4054518). Only solution I have found is to use a previous restore point and not use this update!
