Issue/Introduction

Microsoft reported some defects of July Security Update like following.
July 10, 2018—KB4338818 (Monthly Rollup)
  • There is an issue with Windows and third-party software related to a missing file (oem<number>.inf). Because of this issue, after you apply this update, the network interface controller will stop working.
  • After installing this update, some devices running network monitoring workloads may receive the 0xD1 Stop error because of a race condition.
  • Restarting the SQL Service may fail occasionally with the error, “Tcp port is already in use”.
  • When an administrator tries to stop the World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC), the W3SVC remains in a "stopping" state, but cannot fully stop or be restarted.
Microsoft provided the fixes, but Patch Manager didn't have these patch contents because of individual patches.
