Patch Tuesday: Microsoft Admits Problem with MS15-032, Plans to Investigate

There's been growing complaint from customers who installed the update associated with MS15-032 this month. The problem exhibits itself in the following error message:

Windows Update encountered an unknown error

 error code 80092004

10 days after the update released, Microsoft has finally deemed the problem big enough to do something about it.

According to KB3038314, the issue only makes an appearance during a specific event. It happens…

…after you perform a clean installation of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, and then you upgrade from Internet Explorer 8 to Internet Explorer 11.

This type of event happens most often in businesses where IT staff is configuring new PCs. Microsoft says it is researching the problem.

MS15-032 is a cumulative security update for Internet Explorer.
