Problems on windows 2008R2 production server following August 2015 patches

As a followup to this post, two of the August 2015 updates apparently fix the same issue, causing problems on one of our servers.

While in July the patches were:
KB3067505 and KB3057154

This time it is:
KB3060716 and  KB3071756

With these patches installed, a hot folder mechanism refused to work more than  once. The actual mechanism behind it still remains in the dark at the moment. Looking at the security bulletins, the problem appears to center around a privilege escalation bug.

Removing these two patches brought everything back to normal.
