Another Botched Update: KB2887069 Hangs at 12 Percent on Windows 7

It appears that one of the updates released on Tuesday is causing problems to users

Word is that Microsoft has released another botched update on Patch Tuesday, as some of the users running Windows 7 are having trouble with one of the bulletins.

Posts on Microsoft's Community forums reveal that KB2887069 fails to install and hiding the update until a fix comes out seems to be the only choice.

While some users claim that the update gets stuck during the installation process, others are claiming that Windows 7 is then returning a Blue Screen of Death. In some cases, a number of audio drivers could also be affected.

Microsoft hasn't yet issued a statement on this, but the company is probably aware that one of the updates released on Patch Tuesday might be botched, so expect a workaround anytime soon.

In the meantime, users having problems with the update are recommended to hide it from Windows Update and re-enable it once an official fix is being shipped.
