  • Are Bluekeep patches causing BSODs with Server 2008 SP2 and Vista?

    Posted on June 7th, 2019 at 17:23 PKCano Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    There are reports that the Monthly Rollups started causing problems with Server 2008 SP2 beginning in April. It seems the same issues have occurred on Windows Vista  with Microsoft’s advice to patch for Bluekeep using Server 2008 SP2 patches.
    According to the same anonymous poster who reported the issues in April with KB4493471:

    I realize this topic is getting old, but Avast just recently took action to address issues that have existed on Server 2008 SP2 since April updates changed the build number to 6003.[…]. They say “the squeaky wheel gets the oil,” and Windows 7 certainly squeaks louder than Server 2008; but Avast finally heard a different squeak in a recent spiceworks thread titled Windows Bluekeep patches causing Win32k.sys 0x0000008E BSOD. Avast has recently posted new Knowledge Base articles with titles such as BSOD/Failure to Boot after Installing Avast Business Antivirus version 18.8 on Windows Server 2008. The same issues occurred on Windows Vista if Microsoft’s advice to patch BlueKeep by installing KB4499180 was taken.

    Are any of you seeing these issues, particulatly among those patching Vista for Bluekeep with the Server 2008 SP2 Rollups?
