IBM BigFix Patches for Windows added a new category of Fixlets called 'Workaround'.
Workaround Fixlets cover Microsoft content that do not provide patches. This content sometimes come with a "Here's an easy fix" section that instruct users to manually act on a fix, or to use the Easy Fix tool. They have actions that automate Microsoft's instructions for fixes, such as changing registry keys or running the Easy Fix tool. This content might initially be released by Microsoft as security or non-security content.
