Microsoft issues urgent warning to update Windows 10 and 11 software NOW after ‘serious problems’ found
BILLIONS of Windows users are being urged to update their operating systems after Microsoft confirmed serious problems that can’t be fixed yet.
A new update across all Windows operating systems apparently breaks the company’s Microsoft Installer [MSI].
“After installing KB5007215 or later updates, Microsoft Installer might have issues repairing or updating apps,” Microsoft said in a statement.
“Affected apps might fail to open after an update or repair has been attempted.”
KB5007215 was shipped out to users on November 9 and it is affecting Windows 11 and several Windows 10 users.
A resolution is in the works as Microsoft stated it will “provide an update in an upcoming release.”
Until then, Windows users are being warned to watch out for KB5007215.
Thankfully, the update can be removed through the following steps.
First, in the Windows Desktop Search, type “update history” then click “View your update history”
Then, select “Uninstall Updates” which should open the “Installed Updates” dialog window.
When this window comes up, find “KB5007215” and click the “Uninstall” button.
After this, be sure to restart your computer and the update should be removed from your device.
