Right on cue, Susan Bradley pointed me to a problem that people are having with a “Recommended” patch issued August 14.
KB 2647753 is installing itself over and over again, according to many reports on the Microsoft Answers forum, and all over the web. Customers advize that they install the patch, reboot, and the patch is offered again – even though it shows up in the “installed patches” list. Repeatedly.
Apparently the solution is to apply an associated hotfix manually.
Life’s too short, folks. Hold off on applying those patches until they get thoroughly tested! And if you got caught with this one, and you can’t stand the idea of applying the same patch a few dozen times, go ahead and follow the steps in the MS Answers forum to rid yourself of the pesky patch prompt.
