Hey,

You know, I don't have the resources to run a WSUS server and feel like I am forced to install these updates. We have about 100 computer to take care of and these failed updates are really taxing on our IT department. What are our options to try and mitigate the time lost to Microsoft's failed updates?

Additionally, when Microsoft states that it has pulled an update, does that not mean that it won't install on our computers? Because it installed on our computers last night after microsoft said it had pulled the update?

Can MS not send out an update to remove this update?

I feel like I am a hostage some times.

Sorry to sound Ranty, but it gets tiresome.

    Why do you say you don't have the resources for WSUS? If you follow my guide on How to Setup, Manage, and Maintain WSUS and setup WSUS the way I outline, you spend maybe 15 minutes a month approving updates to both a test group and then to your production groups.

    Thank you. I will do this!
    Everytime I have used WSUS in the past, I have to spend way way too much time approving updates.
