Microsoft is now telling us NOT to install this past week's security update. Roughly half the PC's out there experienced (me too) loss of printing ability or BSOD (blue screen of death). They're now saying if you did update to undo it (Win 10 allows you to uninstall updates) until they get this fixed.
To see what version of Win 10 your on:
- Press the Windows Key and R to bring up the Run window.
- Type winver in the text field and press Enter.
This was what was forwarded to me. I uninstalled and computer works fine now. Talk to your IT person before doing.
Please go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Programs and Features Click on the “View installed updates”
Remove Windows updates that are corresponding to your Windows version, see below:
For Windows 10 version 1909 – remove -> (KB5000808)
For Windows 10 version 2004 – remove -> (KB5000802)
For Windows 10 version 20H2 – remove -> (KB5000802)
For Windows 10 version 1809 – remove -> (KB5000822)
For Windows 8.1 – remove -> (KB5000848 and KB5000853)
For Windows 7 SP1 – remove -> (KB5000841 and KB5000851)
I want to thank you for posting this here. One of my systems had BSOD yesterday and instead of freaking out over it, I recognized it was what you mentioned and I removed the KB-802. So far, all is good. I do a lot of IT as it is , and not having to research this meant my downtime was about 10 minutes.
"Level Up" is a gaming function, not a real life function.
Thank you for the information... That is why I try to never let automatic downloads to my computer ..But sometimes after a while you have no choice and it appears that you may not be able to shut off computer without downloading update...
