Microsoft has released a security update last week for windows users. However, on Friday the company last week has quietly requested its customers to uninstall the update. Microsoft took this decision after many users started complaining about the same old infamous Blue Screen of Death error.
The update MS14-045 was released in combination with nine other updates on August 12.
The update has been designed to fix three different issues. These include the font error, the Windows Kernel error and the heart of the OS error.
The MS14-045 update as reported by computerworld, started generating Stop 0×50 error on many Microsoft customers systems. It has to be also noted that Windows 7 PCs with 64 bit version of OS users has faced the most problems. The Windows 7 users have started complaining regarding this issue within few hours of installing the update.
As a result Microsoft has issued a guideline through the Update MS14-045’s FAQ. The guideline stated, “Microsoft is investigating behavior associated with the installation of this update and will update this bulletin when more information becomes available. Microsoft recommends that customers uninstall this update. As an added precaution, Microsoft has removed the download links to the 2982791 security update.”
The updates (KB2982791 KB2970228 KB2975719 or KB2975331) resulted in bad patch and triggered x50 stop error message, crashing the system.
The official thread on Microsoft community forum has already received over 400 messages and still counting.
Although some users were able to obtain the control for their Windows systems by deploying the System Restore option for a previous date, it certainly doesn’t make them happy.
In 2013, the customers have faced a similar problem which resulted in same Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error. That time, the company has did the same thing and asked the users to uninstall the update.
Even the updates for Microsoft Suite in September 2013 resulted in some issues. This is definitely a nagging and alarming issue for Microsoft, especially at a time when they are facing strong competition from the likes of Apple and Google.
The three more updates which created problems have been pulled down from the website. However Microsoft has not advised or suggested the users who installed those updates to uninstall.
