[Solved] P52 IR Camera Crashed after updating latest windows

OS: Windows 10 Pro for Workstation, version 10.0.17134.556


After installing the latest patch of Windows KB4480976, my Windows Hello with IR Camera doesn't work, no matter upgrade the driver of IR camera or rollback it.


At the first time, I was glad to found that the Windows has already set a recovery point for me before the execution of installing the patch, but in the end, the system shows a blue screen to me when I reboot from a "successful recovery process".


Finally, I made a USB drive booting my laptop and rollback the "rollback", now I can enter the desktop, but still has the problem with IR Camera.


============= Update ===============

Thank you for the update. It's usually good to disable security applications before updating and/or doing installations -- especially cameras and printers.
