    KB3004394 already pulled from Dec. WU

    CNET article about the Root cert. update:
    "Known as KB3004394, the first buggy update related to Microsoft's Windows Root Certificate Program, which automatically distributes trusted root certificates in Windows.
    The update created trouble specifically with computers running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 by clobbering their ability to install future updates.

    In response, Microsoft has issued a new update that removes the KB3004394 update from affected systems."
    The new update to remove kb3004394 is kb3024777

    Mine updated to KB3004394 on 12/10 and installed KB3024777 this AM on 2 computers. KB3004394 is still listed as installed.

    When I check mine ( on 2 computers this afternoon ) after installing KB3024777 and a reboot, both KB3004394 and KB3024777 are gone from the installed updates

    Interesting, I've rebooted mine, actually 3 computers, and they still list the 2 updates as installed.

    I know why Berton. I looked in Program Features>installed updates:
    Program Features_installed Updates.JPG
    But if I go to Windows Update>Installed updates:
    WU_installed Updates.JPG

    That's Update History.

    (Installed Updates is the same however you reach it.)

    Then why is it listed in one and not the other? Program Features>Installed Updates tells me that KB3024777 must have gotten rid of KB3004394 because they are both absent. Evidently Windows Update>Installed Updates keeps a record of all updates that have installed no matter if they have been reversed or not. Obviously I am guessing but that seems to be the case on my computer at least.
    There has to be a reason that Installed Windows Updates are shown differently between the two.

    Same on my system. Both KB3004394 and KB3024777 are listed in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update\View update history but are not listed in Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features\Installed Updates.

    Because the first is Installed Updates but the second is View update history (not Installed Updates).

    Yes, you can't rewrite history.

    Ahh, I get it, a terminology correction.
