KB5004945 is a new security update that has been released for any Windows version newer than v2004.
Users that have Windows 10 version 1909 will first get the KB5004946 patch, and then, the PrintNightmare patch will also be installed. If you are a Windows 7 user, this patch is also available for you, even though the operating system is out of support.
The whole situation is very serious because even computers with Windows 7 will be able to install this patch and this clearly indicates the gravity of the issue.
The security patch that I’ve mentioned up above is now available for quite a few versions of Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2021 R2, Windows Server 2008, and Windows RT 8.1. So.. How to fix it:
1. Open the Windows update
Press the Win + X key combination by using your keyboard
Chose Settings from the pop-up menu.
Navigate to Updates & Security, and then choose Windows Update.
Perform the update. Open the Windows Update windows and click Check for Updates
Press the Install now button to update to version 20H2 of Windows 10, thus getting the KB5004945 patch. Wait for the installation process to complete and click restart now.
