    One Microsoft update, in the latest batch, is causing problems, for some users.
    I haven't had any issues, with the update in question.
    There is a fix here, if you need it.

    I moved the post to the new Microsoft Update forum since it is update specific.

    I just piscked up those updates and I haven't had any problems either.

    It seems that the MS Update MS10-015 which caused this, may not have been to blame.
    Most researchers are convinced that the vast bulk of the BSOD reports were due to the TDSS/TDL3 malware. If a computer had this rootkit and the MS10-015 update was installed, it would blue screen.
    It seems the 'hackers' got caught out, some people didn't realise they had this infection until their machines starting blue screening after the update.
    Ironically, the hackers have pushed out an update for their malware so that it doesn't blue screen anymore with the MS Update.

    Hackers resolve conflict with Microsoft update so users don't notice infection
