However, shortly after releasing it, the software giant had to recall the first update because it caused problems with various third-party programs; it crippled computers and triggered error messages. Kaspersky’s anti-virus programs also started acting up once the update was installed, erroneously assuming that they no longer had a valid licence and discontinuing operation. When re-releasing the update, Microsoft didn’t clarify whether this was the reason for the system malfunctioning.
The new patch is already being deployed via Windows Update. Microsoft is offering a bootable recovery disk as an ISO image to customers whose computers have failed to boot since the first patch was installed.
