Again, something went wrong with Microsoft developers. Update KB4524244 for Windows, released last week, as part of the February "Tuesday of updates," causes freezes, problems with downloading and installation. In particular, according to the publication Bleeping computer, problems are seen among users of HP and Apple devices.
Update KB4524244 was intended for all versions of Windows 10 between 1607 and 1909, as well as Windows Server, and should fix the problem in the third-party Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and boot manager, which could put machines with UEFI at risk.
However, when installing the update, many users found problems: for some, the system stopped responding and demonstrating anything other than the BIOS screen; for others, the update was not installed, leading to the appearance of error 0x800f0922; for third, KB4524244 was still installed, but after that constant freezes began, and it became impossible to work because of which.
Last weekend, Microsoft developers recognizedthat the problem really exists and it is serious. Currently, KB4524244 has been removed from Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), and the Microsoft Update Catalog, and instructions have been published for affected users to restore their system to health. In fact, the recommendations of Microsoft developers come down to removal of KB4524244. They promise to present a revised and revised version of the update in the near future.
