KB4516067 MS WINDOWS UPDATE RRS feed

  • Question

  • MS Windows Security Update KB4516067 causes the internet explorer not to work. The forum advised to uninstall, which I did, and IE returned perfectly yesterday. However MS updated automatically again today and IE went out. Again checking the control panel I noted that the update was KB4516067. Uninstalled it and everything on IE works perfect again. question- How do I stop MS from constantly trying to update my system with this rogue security update and is it necessary / essential to have this KB4516067 when it causes all this strife? Many thanks for your help.

  • Hi,

    This IT Professional forum is for questions, feedback, or anything else related to setting up and deploying the RTM release versions of Office 2016, Office 2019, and Office 365 ProPlus.

    Your question is mainly related to Windows Updates. Since this forum focuses more on questions related to Office desktop applications, to help you better  solve the question, I will move the thread to Windows 10 General Forum. You may get more helpful replies there.

    Thanks for your kind understanding.

    Best Regards,

    Herb

  • Hi

    How do I stop MS from constantly trying to update my system with this rogue security update and is it necessary / essential to have this KB4516067 when it causes all this strife? 

    I suggest that you can try to remove the update to fix the issue, follow these steps to uninstall KB4516067 from your system:

    1. Open the Start menu, search for Control Panel and open it.
    2. Go to Programs > View installed updates section.
    3. Navigate to the search box and type KB4516067.
    4. Uninstall the following update once it appears in the search results:   

     Update for Microsoft Windows (kb4516067)

    1. Wait for the system to complete the uninstallation process.

    Note: Windows might attempt to install the same patch again. You can avoid this situation by disabling the Windows Update service from Services.

    If removing the update does not help, you still have the option to reset your device from the Settings app. This option will restore your device to the Factory Settings.

    Hope can help you.

    Best regards

    Kiki Shi

  • Hi Kiki Shi

    Windows does update that KB4516067 every time the computer is closed down. On opening up it uploads each time. So it knocks off the Internet Explorer. I then have to go through process of uninstall to recover the IE. I will try disabling the Windows Update service from Services. It would be useful if it was possible to specifically exclude a particular update and allow all others to update as normal. Do you know if that is possible?

    Thanks
