Tech giant Microsoft has recommended that an update released in the latest Patch Tuesday be removed, after users reported incidents of the "blue screen of death" after installation.

Microsoft released two critical security updates and others rated as "important" for Windows and Internet Explorer as part of its latest round of Patch Tuesday updates.

However, a number of Windows 7 users have reported issues with security update 2823324, which is part of security bulletin MS13-036.

MS13-036 was meant to fix three privately disclosed flaws and one publicly disclosed flaw in an NTFS kernel-mode driver related to the elevation of privileges when a user is logged in. However, once installed, security update 2823324 -- part of the bulletin -- may produce a "STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}" problem for users. The error occurs early in the startup process, and no Memory.dmp file is created.

As a result, Microsoft has temporarily pulled the patch from its security bulletin while the issue is being investigated.
it was installed April 10 on my system, coming off just now

Took me some digging but it appears I have it installed. On several machines I might add. I have yet to see any blue screens, stop errors or even the mentioned event ID in the eventlog though.

If you don't have any issues right after installing this one I think it's safe to keep it. It's probably some weird interaction with some third party software people have installed. MS just pulled it to make sure.

Do we have to uninstall?
Or will it automatically get updated on next update?
