    KB4560960 Breaks Wi-Fi to printer


    I have a Brother MFC-6490CW printer and KB4560960 messed up my ability to configure it for custom size printing.

    Hi, your tablet appears to be from 2013, Win 8, so presumably not guaranteed to be Win 10 compatible. Understand then that by upgrading to Win 10 you have taken the risk that even it works initially, there is no guarantee of future compatibility.

    You can compare notes with other users (Google, Acer's forum) of course.

    You can uninstall the update, check everything's ok and hide (block) the update (tutorial).

    You can also elect to block all further updates (Defender updates continue) with e.g.
    Sledeghammer (free) - just Google it.

    You can then still perform manual scans for updates with WUMgr included in Sledgehammer.

    I should have updated my specs, those you see are from an old tablet. My PC is a HP x64, 5gh processor with 8 GB memory running Windows 10 Pro.

    I do have 3 other PCs and I just checked on of my Dells and it has the same issue, right now, the printer activates, but will not print.

    Hello @rdwray,

    There is another thread that also discusses problems with a Brother printer here . . .
    Printer doesn't work anymore after the last Windows update.

    Thanks for the info, we are all having the same issue, this is the problem: Well it is K44560960 that is killing our printers and here is the cause: Updates to improve security when using external devices (such as game controllers, printers, and web cameras) and input devices (such as a mouse, keyboard, or stylus).

    Suggestion in my post #2 still applies.

    For what it is worth, pretty much every brand of printer is being effected. The PCL5/6 driver types, amongst a few others, seem to be the most severely impacted. Updating the print driver to the most recent version of PCL6 seems to resolve it, but PCL5 is completely broken. For now, the most realistic fix is to go into your update options, uninstall patch KB4560960, and tell your PC not to updated automatically for now. We are hoping to see some kind of formal Microsoft fix before the end of the week, but we shall see!

    Like a damn wrecking ball. Though frankly, this is now the second time they have broken printing in the last 6 months or so. Seems like they just let us test their patches for them haha
