Microsoft acknowledged update issue.
Microsoft has recognized a problem in the Windows 7 operating system that appeared in the final update and is already preparing a fix. However, only users who have paid for support renewal will be able to get it.
Updates KB4534310 and KB4534314 were the final updates of Windows 7, which the company released on the day the OS support ended on January 14. After installation, users began to complain that the system removes installed wallpapers and replaces them with a black background.
As explained by Microsoft, update KB4534310, indeed, can lead to the fact that the wallpaper turns black in the “Stretch” mode. As a workaround, it is proposed to use other modes for wallpaper, such as “Fill”, “Fit”, “Tile” and “Center”.
Microsoft promised to release a fix for this defect, which she herself created. However, the update will be available only to organizations and companies that have paid for the Windows 7 ESU (Extended Security Updates) service.
