This month's Patch Tuesday updates brought in a number of problems and headaches for some users. Microsoft has been spending the last few days fixing those issues - one brought by an Intel driver and another had to do with HP drivers. If you are facing the loss of audio on your devices after installing cumulative updates, an update is now available. For those who were getting Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), the company has now released an update to address that problem, as well.
