Latest Windows 8.1 Update has Critical Bugs

Microsoft has pulled the latest Windows 8.1 updates released last Tuesday due to bugs. The company is still working on a fix. Microsoft issued a message in the support section describing three known issues that triggered them to remove the download links to the update files.

The three known issues are:

Known issue 1
After you install this security update, fonts that are installed in a location other than the default fonts directory (%windir%\fonts\) cannot be changed when they are loaded into any active session. Attempts to change, replace, or delete these fonts will be blocked, and a "File in use" message will be presented.

Known issue 2

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

Known issue 3
