KB2807986 "throttled" state

On March 15, 2013, in Security, by

One of the things I wrote up in the SMBKitchen patching tips is the reason KB2807986 is unchecked…Microsoft is throttling the update for some unknown reason…

Known issues with this security update

  • In certain automated update deployment scenarios (such as from Windows Update or Microsoft Update), this update may not always install. This would also cause other pending updates not to install. For more information about this issue, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    Time-out error occurs when you install a Windows Update package that contains drivers on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

    This issue can occur with any windows update package that contains drivers on systems that do not have the critical non-sec GDR update 2552343 installed.

    We recommend that you install update 2552343 before you deploy this security update

Great but http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;2552343 only is offered up from the Windows update site and I already have this on my computer… so why is the update unchecked?
