Microsoft has recommended Windows 7 users to remove a broken recent update. Although the update works fine on latest operating systems, it causes some problems in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, one of which is preventing the installation of a newer update that could potentially fix it.
The KB3004394 was released last week as part of the company's regular Patch Tuesday - recently renamed to Update Tuesday program. It was intended tо update the Windows Root Certificate Programme and to boost system security.
Probably one of the worst problems this new update causes, is to disable the Windows Defender service. The security software is completely disabled with the new update. To solve the problem, Microsoft has released a patch for the buggy update, which is known as KB3024777, and is available directly through Windows Update.
This is not the first time that Microsoft has been forced to withdraw and replace a faulty patch. In January, it released an update to fix a bug with the Surface Pro 2 tablet, which was caused by the previous month's update. Last April, the company also replaced a patch that prevented some Windows 7 PCs from booting properly.
