Microsoft has a fix for its recently pulled driver update for affected Windows 10 users

Driver update Microsoft – WPD – 2/22/2016 12:00:00 AM – 5.2.5326.4762 has been a hot mess for some unfortunate Windows 10 users.

According to a few complaints lodged with the Microsoft Community forum, Windows 10 users, in particular, have been suffering connectivity issues with devices, despite the update going out to Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 computers alike.

While the update was automatically downloaded to Windows 10 PCs, the Windows team pulled the update shortly after release due to its effect on connecting devices such as phones, cameras, or external hard drives to computers.

There are two rather lengthy methods for affected users to try in order to circumvent the bug found in the driver update, and both can be found on the Microsoft Community forum page.

If your device was among the small percentage of machines affected by the recent driver update, head to the forums for a fix.
