Microsoft has recommended that users uninstall update KB2982791, because it will cause a stop 0x50 in win32k.sys, usually on Windows 7, 64 bit OS.  It can cause the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).

Have a great day!

Might possibly explain the multitude of Win situations posted relative to WUS problems and such...something to bear in mind where members have STOP 50 errors and are running Win 7.

Removal of more than KB2982791 is recommended including those installed on Windows 8

MS14-045: Description of the security update for kernel-mode drivers: August 12, 2014

Microsoft is investigating behavior in which fonts do not render correctly after any of the following updates are installed:
2982791 MS14-045: Description of the security update for kernel-mode drivers: August 12, 2014
2970228 Update to support the new currency symbol for the Russian ruble in Windows
2975719 August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2
2975331 August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012

Microsoft has removed the download links to these updates while these issues are being investigated.

Open the Programs and Features item in Control Panel, and then click View installed updates. Find and then uninstall any of the following update that are currently installed:


Problems with Windows updates August 2014 KB2982791 KB2970228 KB2975719 KB2975331

Microsoft is recommending that EVERYBODY do this regardless of whether you have a current problem or not.

My experience and view is that there is a strong possibility that ANYBODY could experience the problem and be unable to boot windows at any time with these updates installed, or have display issues.
