Fresh update for Windows 7, just days after Microsoft said there would be no more patches

Microsoft has issued a fresh update for Windows 7, just days after it said it would provide no more patches for the ageing operating system.

Microsoft made the U-turn after it emerged there was a bug in its “final” patch hich caused “wallpaper issues” for users who configured their computers with the stretch option for their background desktop, causing a plain black screen to be shown when Windows was restarted.

Initially, Microsoft said it would issue the new fix only to those who subscribed to its extended security updates (ESU) program but later it said: “We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release, which will be released to all customers running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.”

Microsoft officially ended support for Windows 7 on 14 January 2020
