Microsoft rolled out two important Windows 7  updates on Patch Tuesday, fixing a series of memory corruption issues that often resulted in system crashes. You can download and install monthly rollup KB4041681 and security update KB4041678 automatically from Windows Update or get the standalone package from the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

KB4041681 changelog

Update KB4041681 includes all the improvements and fixes brought by the previous KB4038803 update, alongside the following bug fixes:

Addressed issue with docking and undocking Internet Explorer windows.

Addressed issue with form submissions in Internet Explorer.

Addressed issue with URL encoding in Internet Explorer.

Addressed issue that prevents an element from receiving focus in Internet Explorer.

Addressed issue with the rendering of a graphics element in Internet Explorer.

Addressed issue where USBHUB.SYS randomly causes memory corruption that results in random system crashes that are extremely difficult to diagnose.

Security updates to Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows kernel, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server.

Unfortunately, users may encounter an application exception error after installing KB4041681. This error usually occurrs when closing certain applications and can affect apps and programs that use mshtml.dll to load web content.

The good news is that this problem only affects the apps that are shutting down but won’t affect their functionality in any way. Microsoft is working on a fix and will roll it out as soon as it’s ready.
