The September 2016 update rollup includes some new improvements and fixes for the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 platform. We recommend that you apply this update rollup as part of your regular maintenance routines.
Assume that you are running Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on a computer on which update 3175024 is installed. When you try to start an application, the application freezes very early in the process and does not completely start.
This issue occurs because the Export Address table Filtering (EAF) mitigation is active on the application.
To work around this issue, use one of the following methods to disable the EAF mitigation on all applications.
Select a running process in EMET, press and hold (or right-click) Configure Process, and then clear the EAF check box on each running application. The following screen shots show these steps.
In Group Policy, add an Application Configuration Group Policy setting that disables EAF for all processes by using an asterisk (*) as a wildcard character for the value name.
