Assume that a domain consists of Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. An event subscription manager list that is configured by using Group Policy Objects (GPOs) has more than 30 items. In this situation, a deadlock may occur in the thread pool for the Svchost.exe process that hosts network services. This causes other threads that are related to the Svchost.exe process to wait. Therefore, the domain controller freezes.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, we have released an update rollup for Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, or Windows Server 2012. We also have released a hotfix for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Update rollup information

The following update rollup is available.

For Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2

Get update rollup 2995388

For Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012

Get update rollup 2995387

Prerequisites

To apply this hotfix, you must first install SP1 on Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2. For more information about how to obtain a Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 service pack, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

976932 Information about Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

Registry information

To use the hotfix in this package, you do not have to make any changes to the registry.

Restart requirement

You may have to restart the computer after you apply this hotfix.

Hotfix replacement information

This hotfix does not replace a previously released hotfix.

The global version of this hotfix installs files that have the attributes that are listed in the following tables. The dates and the times for these files are listed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The dates and the times for these files on your local computer are displayed in your local time together with your current daylight saving time (DST) bias. Additionally, the dates and the times may change when you perform certain operations on the files.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notesImportant Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.1.760 0.16 xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    RTM

    GDR

    6.1.760 1.22 xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    SP1

    LDR

  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2" section. MUM, MANIFEST, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
