We know we are a bit late with posting this as the update was released last week and Microsoft have reportedly fixed it now, but thought we would post anyway in case anyone is still having any issues with this update.

Microsoft have yet again released another Windows Update which has caused corruption and crashing on Windows computers.

So, having spent a few hours searching for the culprit, we found that the update causing the issue is this one:

KB3097877 

So, what can you do to fix it?

The simple solution is that you have to uninstall it, but you should also ensure that you have declined it in your WSUS or SCCM or other popular Windows Update system and if you are using SCCM, you could create a task sequence to remove it en masse.

If you need to know the command line for removing this update, you should try this:

C:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:3097877 /quiet /norestart
