General Discussion / Windows 7 users urged to uninstall broken update that inhibits software-UD:12-16« on: December 13, 2014, 12:09:02 AM »
Quoted from the article: "Microsoft has confirmed that the KB3004394 update it issued on December 10 can cause various problems. What's worse is that it may also prevent users from installing newer updates. The problems are reportedly limited to Windows 7 machines, and don't affect users running Windows 8 or newer".
"Microsoft has now issued a patch that will remove the faulty update from Windows 7 machines. Users can also remove the update manually by going to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates, right-clicking on KB3004394 and selecting Uninstall. This will require a restart."
