    Windows 10 September updates break printing for some users


    On Tuesday, Microsoft published cumulative updates for all supported versions of Windows 10 and it wasn’t long before users started flagging new issues. On our forum and social media, users have claimed that they’re unable to use printers after applying the cumulative updates while others have reported installation issues.

    The cumulative updates – KB5005565 and KB5005566 – are affected. After applying the latest cumulative updates, users are reporting problems when using the network-based printers.

    They can no longer print documents using the network printers, but the printers start working again when they manually uninstall the cumulative update using Settings or Command Prompt.

    “Even from domain admin logged into a workstation, I still could not print to the shared printers on the server. One printer went through the motions as it would print, but nothing came out. The second one flat out crashed explorer.exe when you tried to print. Uninstalling the Sept security update from the server for the moment,” a user wrote.

    “This update destroyed all of printer sharing for hundreds of offices around the US,” another user told us.

    This cumulative apparently addresses the remaining PrintNightmare known as CVE-2021-36958. Windows PrintNightmware is a remote code execution vulnerability that exists in the Windows Print Spooler service and it affects the printing operations of the operating system.

    Attackers can get administrative access to the machine if they’re able to successfully exploit the bug. It’s important to note that these cumulative updates are necessary to protect your devices, but if you’re unable to use the printing service, you can temporarily uninstall the patch.

    Other bugs in September update


    In addition to printing problems, we’ve also seen reports of Windows Update installation issues. If you’re unable to install the update, you can try the offline installer from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Affected Products:
    - Comodo Internet Security / Comodo Antivirus / Comodo Firewall (Affected versions: v6246 and below)
    - Comodo Cloud Antivirus (Affected versions: v533 and below)
    - Internet Security Essentials (Affected versions: v81 and below)
    - Comodo Secure Shopping (Affected versions: v97 and below)

    Possible Problems:
    In case you have updated to MS update KB4022716 prior to updating to latest fixed version of Comodo products, following issues may appear:

    - Crashing browsers
    - May not be able to login to Windows

    Resolution:
    If you are able to login, you can uninstall Comodo and re-install latest fixed Comodo version. Else you need to go to Windows Safe Mode and uninstall Comodo product or re-store system to state before Comodo product was installed.

    In case you want to keep Comodo and pause Windows updates for some time, you may use following steps:
    Step - 1: Click on Start icon on Windows
    Step - 2: Next click on Settings menu item, it will open "Windows Settings" window
    Step - 3: Select "Update & Security" section from there and it will show "Windows Update" section
    Step - 4: Click on "Advanced Options" next, there is "Pause Updates" section allowing you to pause Windows updates for next several days

    You can find same steps with images here .

    Reason:
    There are unexpected changes in last MS update KB4022716, which are incompatible with Comodo products.
