    We are having the same problem on multiple 2008 R2 servers. Issue started on 7/11/2018. Please post anything you find out.

    UPDATE: We have six servers with the problem. In all cases the issue started the day KB4338420 was installed 7/11/2018 to 7/13/2018. We have about 50 servers that were not schedule for updates yet, and none exhibit this issue. Removed the update from the first and its been 30 minutes with no issue. I think this is it.

    Hello @Jay,

    Thank you for sharing the information regarding the issue.

    As the issue is regarding OS itself, it is better to contact Microsoft Support directly, as they are experts in their product.

    Jay, did you solve this issue? We are having the same problem and we want to know if you did something additional to uninstall the KB?
