Microsoft Security Advisory (922582)

Update for Windows


Today we are announcing the availability of an update that does not address a security vulnerability, but is a high priority for customers in keeping their systems updated. The update addresses the following issue:

You may receive error code 0x80070002 when you try to update a computer running on Microsoft Windows that has a minifilter-based application installed. This error code could occur when updating using any of the following Microsoft tools:

Currently, File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) is the only known minifilter-based application that can cause this behavior and is only available in Windows Server 2003 R2. However, many companies are developing minifilter-based applications that will be available in the near future.

We encourage Windows customers to review and install this update. This update will be offered automatically through Automatic Updates. This update has been designed to install successfully even if a minifilter driver is installed that is preventing other updates from installing. For more information about this issue, including download links for the available non-security update, please review Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 922582.
