KACE Product Support Question

How can I locate and disable a Windows Update patch with the K1000?

07/12/2012 5675 views

I have looked through my patch listing and can't find it, but Windows Search 4.0 is being pushed out to my clients now and I can't figure out how to stop it.  It is KB940157 which doesn't show up in my patch list, and I can watch it deploy along with a dialog box that says "Patch is installing, this may take a few minutes" which they have to click OK on.

How can I stop this?

I would stop the schedule first that is pushing it out. Check your schedules to see what was scheuled to run at the time you saw the message.

I then did a quick search under patch listing for the work search and found it. You can make it inactive at that point.

  • I basically did just that, except my searches come up with nothing.

Have you tried to "Delete Unused Patch Files" under /systemui -> Control Panel -> Patch Settings -> Edit Mode?

This is a patch from 2007, which is superseded by many other Search tool patches.  Deleting there, and insuring that superseded patches are not active might help.

  • I will try that, thanks!

Not sure if the issue is fixed now, but from nshah's image above it looks like Windows Search 4.0 is a Recommended update, so I changed out subscription settings to only Critical for now.  Hopefully this will bypass the issue.

  • Thanks but that doesn't apply, I have already disabled Windows Updates. My issue is with what KACE is pushing out.
