Latest Microsoft Patch Update Causes USB Problems
Microsoft issues a new patch the second Tuesday of every month. If additional updates are needed and they cannot wait a full month, the company may also release a patch update on the fourth Tuesday of the month. No one would be surprised if another update is released this week, considering the issues created by the latest one. On February 13th, Microsoft released an update that patched over 50 security vulnerabilities; unfortunately, it appears this update did not go through rigorous testing. Shortly after updating users began experiencing issues with the functionality of their USB ports. This became a major problem for Windows users who were using wireless keyboards and mice. Since the USB ports were not recognizing the wireless receiver, the wireless devices were not working.
