If for some reason you cannot install one of the above updates you will need to uninstall the KB50008XX update until Windows can provide a patch.
Rebooting the machine will be required, and this process will need to be repeated for each affected machine.
First, to prevent the update from automatically applying (and forcing you to repeat the process), go to the Windows Update Settings (available from the Start menu):
And then to the Advanced Options:
And finally to the Pause updates selection, where we can pause any updates for up to 35 days:
Then, we need to access the Update history for the affected machine/s.
This can also be done through the Start menu by typing in "Update History":
Then, Select "Uninstall Updates" at the top:
In this menu, we can choose what updates to uninstall (given we have the permission/rights to do so).
