Windows Update Warning

Post by Termínator™ on Tue Aug 26, 2014 1:05 am

Microsoft quietly recommended users uninstall the most recent security updates after reports began to surface that these updates were causing the dreaded Blue Screen of Death.

According to the PCWorld report, Microsoft said that it discovered issues relating to four individual updates associated with the August Update: 2982791, 2970228, 2975719, and 297533. The updates addressed security and features, and began rolling out on August 2.

Microsoft updated its security bulletin MS14-045 on Friday to warn users of issues associated with the updates. “Microsoft is investigating behavior associated with the installation of this update, and will update this bulletin when more information becomes available,” the company wrote. “Microsoft recommends that customers uninstall this update. As an added precaution, Microsoft has removed the download links to the 2982791 security update.”

MS14-045 applies to Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1, plus Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003.

Microsoft provides detailed steps to apply a fix - but you'll need to put in a little work within the registry file to complete it.
