Microsoft is updating its webcam driver, a major security issue affecting users of Windows 10 and other recent versions of Windows.
The update, which was initially planned for release earlier this year, was rolled out to all Windows 10 machines and is available now.
Microsoft said in a blog post Tuesday that the update addresses a known issue that was affecting some users of its webcam drivers.
The fix includes a fix for an issue in which the webcam driver failed to start after it was restarted, which could cause the driver to crash or become unresponsive.
In the past, users have reported crashes on startup of Windows machines running older versions of the operating system.
A more recent version of the Windows 10 operating system fixes the issue.
Users can check the current version of Windows by running the Windows Update tool.
The problem could also affect Windows 10 Home and Professional, which both use the same version of Microsoft’s webcam driver.
Microsoft added that it is also working on fixes for other Windows 10 issues.
In a blogpost Wednesday, Microsoft said it is working with “many of our partners” to fix the issue, including “Microsoft and its partners who have been deploying updates to support the current Windows 10 release.”
The update is available in the Windows Store for $14.99.
