Important Windows Reboot Requirements

The most recent release of Microsoft updates includes an important reboot and critical patches to prepare Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008R2 for the support extension.

Critical Updates & Essential Windows Reboot

In the most recent release of Microsoft updates, Microsoft has included updates to prepare Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 for the support extension following the end of life on January 14, 2020.

Even if you have not purchased the extension, these updates are crucial and are required.

The following updates are part of that preparation stack and some go back to 2016:

  1. KB4041678
  2. KB3205394
  3. KB3197867
  4. KB3192391

It is important to note the vendor’s reboot discipline requirements for these updates, as a reboot is essential after each update is installed.
