Back in August, Microsoft released two important security updates for Windows 7 and Windows 10. Cumulative updates KB3177725 and KB3176493 were first and foremost aimed at patching severe security vulnerabilities but also brought issues of their own, as many users reported print issues after installing the two updates.

More specifically, the two cumulative updates prevented users from printing more than one page at a time. According to users’ reports, a blank page or a corrupt print job with an error appeared on the screen when they tried to print more than one page at a time, and the only solution to fix the issue was to uninstall the updates.
