Microsoft Releases Windows Update KB4487345 to Fix KB4480970 Issue

Recommended Posts

Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 7 that comes to resolve an issue introduced earlier this week by Patch Tuesday monthly rollup KB4480970.

Windows 7 update KB4487345 is now available for download with just one fix, resolving access to network shares that was previously broken down for the Administrators group.

Microsoft explains in the official KB article of KB4487345 for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2:

“This update resolves the issue where local users who are part of the local ‘Administrators’ group may not be able to remotely access shares on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 machines after installing the January 8th, 2019 security updates. This does not affect domain accounts in the local ‘Administrators’ group.”

The update isn’t pushed to devices on Windows Update, but is only offered through the Microsoft Update Catalog website. This means Windows 7 users need to get it manually to install it on their computers. Most likely, the next monthly rollup shipping in the February Patch Tuesday would also include this fix.Activation issue also resolvedEarlier this week, Microsoft also resolved an issue that many associated with the release of monthly rollup KB4480970 and causing activation failures on volume licensed Windows 7 KMS clients.

Microsoft says this issue has nothing to do with the Windows 7 monthly rollup and it was just a coincidence that the activation error appeared after this update became available.

“The timing of this issue coincides with the release of the January updates (KB4480960 and KB4480970) that were released on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. These events are not related. The issue has been corrected on the backend Microsoft Activation and Validation servers. If you are affected by this issue, please follow the guidance in the Knowledge Base Help article, KB4487266,” it says.

The monthly rollup continues to be available for Windows 7 devices on Windows Update.

I was wondering if/when some of our Win7 clients would get bit by the patch, but being that we implemented the original SMB protocol, we got lucky this time. Actually, we get "lucky" quite often simply by not "upgrading" our software just because Microsoft (and random people on the internet) told us we should.

 

For example, to Microsoft, an upgrade/update to the operating system must include more emojis. No!

Microsoft Releases KB4487345 Update to Fix Windows 7 Share Issues

 

 

Last week Microsoft released the January 2019 Patch Tuesday updates and included in the release were two updates that caused problems connecting to ntework shares on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. On January 11th, Microsoft has released a a stand-alone update that resolves this issue.

 

The two updates that caused this problem are KB4480960 and KB4480970 and when installed caused local users who are part of the local "Administrators" group to not be able to connect to remote shares on Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 Machines. Microsoft added the following information to the update's release notes:

 

Quote

Local users who are part of the local “Administrators“ group may not be able to remotely access shares on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 machines after installing the January 8th, 2019 security updates. This does not affect domain accounts in the local "Administrators" group.   

 

To resolve this issue, on January 11th, 2019 Microsoft released the stand-alone update KB4487345 which makes it so local users who are also in the Administrators group can access remote shares again.

 

The description of this update is:

 

Quote

This update resolves the issue where local users who are part of the local “Administrators“ group may not be able to remotely access shares on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 machines after installing the January 8th, 2019 security updates. This does not affect domain accounts in the local "Administrators" group.

 

If you have been unable to connect to remote shares since installing the January Patch Tuesday updates, then you should download and install the KB4487345 package.

 

When users first encountered this bug, it was suggested that they make the following registry changes in order to be able to connect to shares again.

reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

This key created an elevated, or administrator security token, which is no longer needed or wanted now that the fix has been released. Therefore, if you added these registry changes, please delete the LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy or at least change it to 0 so it uses default behavior.
