How do I remove Microsoft Security update MS14-045 for Windows 7, which I learnt causes BSOD. Looked in uninstall, in Ctrl Panel>Programs>Installed updates, but I am confused. Just uninstall everything that was updated 13-08-2014 or is that too much?

Is it causing BSODs for you, or did you just read it could, and decided you wanted it removed?

I had one BSOD, not more. But given this I'd like to get rid of that update.

As I had my PC running I looked, as btk1w1 advised, in: http://www.tomsguide.com/us/microso... There I found that the idea was to delete the file FNTCACHE.DAT in Windows\System32. Did that and will now restart the computer and see what will happen.

Restarted the PC and it all works well. Run windows update and found Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2830477) an optional update, which I did not install as it looked I did not need it.

Install this update to resolve issues in Windows. For a complete listing of the issues that are included in this update, see the associated Microsoft Knowledge Base article for more information. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

If you were suffering from the effects of the update bug, your PC would BSOD on boot. If you have the dump, throw it up somewhere and I'll throw it in the debugger. Minidumps don't have much use beyond statistics gathering for MS, but at least I can tell you what caused the BSOD, just not the why.
