Windows 10

In its Patch Tuesday releases yesterday, Microsoft sent fixes to over 62 security vulnerabilities, including several that were rated critical or were zero-days. An extremely important update, we had suggested our readers install the patches right away as some flaws were already spotted in targeted attacks. Turns out the update is creating problems for some machines that are running the latest Windows 10 Creators Update.

After last night’s security updates that brought those on the Windows 10 Creators Update up to cumulative build 15063.674, some users woke up to face the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). After automatic installation of last night’s security updates, the security patch, KB4041676, appears to be failing for quite a few people. The affected machines reportedly turn into useless junk temporarily since the update puts them into an endless reboot loop.

One reason that has come up so far is that the mandatory update often fails on systems with support for USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (USCI). it is suggested to go into the system BIOS and disable UCSI before to applying the updates. However, some have reported this issue on systems without USB Type-C.

We have reached out to Microsoft for a comment, but until an official explanation and/or a workaround is offered, a user on Reddit has suggested a fix – head over here for complete instructions to fix the Windows 10 BSOD issue.

In an emailed statement to Wccftech, a Microsoft spokesperson said that the issue has now been resolved and never impacted customers who receive updates via Windows Update. The company suggests that it only affected enterprise consumers.

As reported earlier, this is a very critical security update and should be installed on all Windows 10 versions being supported by the company.
