KB4053577  bugs

While Microsoft didn’t list any known KB4053577 bugs, a few users reported that the patch apparently blocks Adobe Flash Player from running video content.

I have an HP Pavilion G series i3 M370 laptop with an Intel HD Graphics chip. […] Since yesterday’s windows update when I try to run video content on the UK BBC website I get an error whereby the video runs but I get random green rectangular blocks disrupting the video. […]
I have checked this with Chrome, Firefox and Edge and all display the same problem. […] I’m guessing that the Adobe Flash update KB4053577 has caused the problem. I’ve uninstalled this and also uninstalled Flash Player and re-installed both. This has not fixed the problem.
