    KB4041676 - don't install 12th Oct 17 at 9:21 AM
    MS appear to have made another boo boo with their latest Win 10 update (KB4041676) - causing many PC's to blue screen - so I would advise not to install this until it has been fixed !!
    Also - ensure that you have a "restore point" to roll back to - since, once this update is installed, apparently - it cannot be easily removed and there is no fix for the situation !!

    May be only the enterprise versions that are having the blue screens.

    More info here http://www.zdnet.com/article/microso...users-systems/

    Problems appear to only affect business users.
    The update has downloaded on my PC's but I have delayed the install for a few days just in case.

    Latest info from MS

    Microsoft is aware of a publishing issue with the October 10th, 2017 monthly security updates for Windows 10 version 1703 (KB4041676) and version 1607 (KB4041691), and Windows Server 2016 (KB4041691) for WSUS/SCCM managed devices. Customers that download updates directly from Windows Update (Home and consumer devices) or Windows Update for Business are not impacted.
