KB3013769 Botched Update Causes BSOD on Windows PCs Running Kaspersky Software - Softpedia

Unfortunately for many users, one of the updates that experience the same behavior is KB3013769, a botched patch that was causing BSODs on computers running Kaspersky security software.

The update was first launched in December 2014, and at that time, security engineers working for both Kaspersky and Microsoft confirmed that there was an issue with this patch and suggested Windows users to remove the security apps, install the app, and then re-install Kasperskys solutions.


Microsoft, stop causing trouble for AV vendors!

My home desktop is running Windows 8.1 Professional 64-bits with Kaspersky Internet Security 2015. I installed every single Windows Updates I had (that were not drivers) yesterday and rebooted the computer multiple time since then. Didn't get a single BSOD so far. Funny how everytime a problematic Windows Update gets released, I install it and never have a single issue. I must be taking care of my system right I guess :P

I dropped Kaspersky quite some time ago, so I would not dare to say if I know it actually causes trouble or not :P

You might want to check if that particular update is present?

I'll check once I get home tonight. But I'm sure that I have it since I installed every single one of them and I had like 40 :P
