Botched Patch Tuesday Updates Also Causing Problems on Windows 8, 8.1

KB2810009 and KB2817630 updates break down Outlook on a number of systems

As I’ve reported a couple of hours ago, three of the updates released by Microsoft on this month’s Patch Tuesday cycle are causing trouble to Windows 7 users and ask to be installed over and over again.

While KB2760411, KB2760588, and KB2760583 patches are reportedly affecting Windows Vista and 7, two different updates seem to break down Outlook 2013 on Windows 8 and 8.1.

Both KB2810009 and KB2817630 are reportedly responsible for a number of issues, including an empty folder pane, unavailable list of email accounts, folders and favorites.

Uninstalling these two updates seems to be the only way to fix these problems until Microsoft rolls out an official workaround.

To do this, go over to “Control Panel,” click on “Programs and Features” and then on “View installed updates.” Search for KB2810009 and KB2817630, check both of them and hit the “Uninstall” button. Reboot your system and everything should work just fine.
