Another week into 2020 and it seems an upgrade from Microsoft is causing trouble on millions of desktops around the world. The latest Windows patch causes windows 10 to crash and freeze with some users reporting files going missing or being deleted.
The patch was originally released on Tuesday and it took several days for Microsoft to realise and pull the update from being deployed to users’ machines. The patch is titled “KB4524244” and at LBT we strongly suggest you do not install this until a fix is released.
This is not the first time a rogue update has been released, a recent patch caused millions of users to be unable to access and use the search function on windows 10 without re-indexing their machines. Microsoft has released a statement below:
This standalone security update has been removed due to an issue affecting a sub-set of devices. It will not be re-offered from Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or Microsoft Update Catalog.
Note Removal of this standalone security update does not affect successful installation or any changes within any other February 11, 2020 security updates, including Latest Cumulative Update (LCU), Monthly Rollup or Security Only update.
