Patch Tuesday

Folks, today is Patch Tuesday so let’s hope Microsoft won’t blow it again. As you all know, the tech giant rolled out a series of updates a few days ago to fix the recently unveiled CPU vulnerabilities that could lead to data theft. However, the respective patches did more harm than good.

Thousands of Windows 7 and Windows 10 users flooded Microsoft’s forum with angry complaints about the plethora of issues that these updates had triggered, particularly KB405689.

In severe situations, computers remained completely unusable: the Windows logo would stuck on the screen on restart and no matter how many times users tried to reboot their devices, it just wouldn’t work.

In other cases, users got stuck in BSOD reboot loops that seemed to last forever. Anyway, if you’re curios to learn what are the most common KB405689 issues affecting users, check out the articles below:

Now, if you want to block KB405689 from installing, we listed all the steps to follow in this article.

Microsoft officially acknowledged the problem

The Redmond giant finally admitted that there is a problem with the recent updates and already paused Windows OS updates to devices with impacted AMD processors.

Microsoft is working with AMD to resolve this issue and resume Windows OS security updates to the affected AMD devices via Windows Update and WSUS as soon as possible.

But will Microsoft manage to fix the problem on Patch Tuesday?

Taking into account their recent update experience, many users don’t think that today’s Patch Tuesday edition will manage to fix all the issues triggered by the latest updates.

As a result, they prefer to refrain from installing any updates that the company will roll out today. Of course, this is not the best solution as far as security is concerned, but it’s easy to understand why many users took this decision.

What do you think: will Patch Tuesday fix the recent Windows update issues? Are you planning to install the updates as soon as they’re available or do you prefer to wait for a few more days? Let us know in the comments below.
