Microsoft reissues KB4093118 for Windows 7 SP1/2008R2 SP1 to fix NIC bug

In order to fix some of the problems on the PC, Microsoft today re-released KB4093118, an April 2018 Update Rollup for Windows 7 system. KB4093118 was announced on the April Patch Tuesday Day (April 10), but some devices caused the NIC card to fail after installation. Today on the support page, the update date is shown on April 13. In the update log, Microsoft stated that it has fixed the BUG of the NIC.
