I am also having the same problem. After the update, the watchdog blue screen kept appearing. I know nothing about computers or how they work, so I took it to two different repairmen...and neither fixed the problem. $$ down the drain. Okay, so I decided to search more on google and found that a firmware update might fix the problem. I did that and it got better but still not fixed completely. So, I bought a new router. After connecting it, my computer worked perfectly for one day. Now, I'm right back to getting the error screen again.]

 

I read about UNinstalling the update. My problem is when I go to programs and features and click view installed updates, there are 11 of them! I think the one I need to uninstall is the one that occurred on 1-9-18. But, there are more that occurred on 1-10-18, and 1-12-18. Should I risk uninstalling the one on 1-9? I'm to the point I don't know what to do. Please help me if you can.

Thank you for getting back to me. However, after three repairmen and mega wasted bucks, I bought a new computer and started from scratch. I should have done that to begin with. Live and learn. At least now I have a back up computer since I had the last repair guy strip the old one. Hopefully, that will prevent me from being without a working computer the next time something like this happens.

 

Again, thank you so, so much for responding and trying to help me.

It's unfortunate you didn't have time for us to see if we could help your resolve this, but you now have a new computer which you should enjoy.

If you had uninstalled this update KB4056895 you would have been back up and running. It done the same thing to mine. It does not want to play with older AMD processors.

Microsoft has already addressed this issue and has an update which resolves this issue.
