A few months ago, Microsoft  released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update along with support for Centennial/desktop bridge apps. In other words, all developers who created applications for desktop computers were able convert their applications to Universal Windows Apps and upload them to the official Windows Store.

However, it seems that some applications had some real issues that could crash your computer and cause it to produce a BSOD error screen. In addition, the applications which started after the reboot on the affected computers were getting stuck in a boot cycle, which made it impossible to completely boot the PC.

Soon enough, Microsoft reported that “after installing or launching certain apps from the Windows Store, your machine may unexpectedly reboot with the error: 0x139 (KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_ FAILURE)”. The American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington added that some of the affected applications are Ear Trumpet, Teslagrad, JT2Go and Kodi.

Well, thanks to the new Windows update (Version 14393.351 – KB3197954) released a few days ago, these issues are now fixed. So, if you had some issues with your computer randomly rebooting, we suggest you install the update right away and see if it fixes your issues.

If you can’t install the update because your computer reboots before you can login, you should use system restore to recover your system. You can also try booting your computer in safe mode with networking and check if you can install the update that way. The update can be accessed from the Windows Update and it can be installed by following some simple steps.
