IIS problems after installing July'18 Windows Updates

We are experiencing the following problems after installing the July'18 updates in our servers running Windows 2012 and Windows 2016:
1) We can no longer restart the www service. The service locks in "stopping" forever and we have to restart the server.
2) We can no longer instantiate .NET .DLLs (interop) in classic ASP using server.createobject. We receive the error 0x800A01AD "ActiveX component can't create object".
We could only fix both problems after uninstalling ALL the July KB's: KB4284815, KB4338815, KB4338424, KB4338419, KB4054566
Please help us!

You have already posted to Stack Overflow and been told of existing threads.
If you do want to touch the latest information, open a support case via
http://support.microsoft.com to work with Microsoft support team.
Overall, most customers are aware of the issues now, and waiting for further official announcements from Microsoft. Keep posting the same information everywhere won't help yourself much.

I'm glad many customers are aware of the issues. That only happened because of the threads we, the users, are posting in as many places as possible.
BTW, Microsoft already patched the
www service restart bug. We are still waiting for a solution of the the error 0x800A01AD "ActiveX component can't create object" besides uninstalling the July Updates.

Good news: Microsoft is aware of the .NET DLL access denied errors and is already working on a solution: https://support.microsoft.com/am-et/help/4345913/access-denied-errors-after-installing-july-2018-security-rollup-update
Bad news: we tried all the workarounds they suggest in the above article with no success.

Yesterday Microsoft finally published a resolution for the "ActiveX component can't create object" error: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4345913/access-denied-errors-after-installing-july-2018-security-rollup-update. I tested it in Windows Server
2012 R2 and Windows 2016 and it worked OK.
