Windows 10 users hit by 'nightmare' bug that's giving them an impossible choice to make


That’s now leaving Windows 10 users with a huge headache as it appears the only other way to fix the issue is to uninstall the vital KB5004945 update.

“We are seeing the same problems and the only solution right now is to uninstall the update,” said one user on Zebra’s forum page.

Clearly, uninstalling KB5004945, will mean users are able to print again but it will then leave their PC open to attack from hackers.

As Microsoft explains: “A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Print Spooler service improperly performs privileged file operations. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.”
