Hello, I want to ask about a specific windows update before i install it. First let me explain. I recently gotten a couple blue screen of death's whenever closing out of the Chrome Browser. I've researched on google for many many hours, looked through many forums and sites. The BSOD i get is about win32k.sys -- I've downloaded "windbg" tool to look at the crash dump details, and it specifically states "chrome.exe" as the process that causes it.
I'm not going to try and make this way too long to read, but after hours of research, there's supposedly a windows update that might possibly work.
It's " Update for Windows XP KB959252 " - All the official microsoft links i found to this are either "404 page not found" or "file not found" pages. This page listed the kb959252 about chrome and win32k.sys, but links to a microsoft page that isnt avaiable anymore.
Eventually i found it from this website, finally:
I had to go to wayback machine to view a microsoft page that tells what files are modified in this update. And the win32k.sys file had a timestamp of 2008
But the win32k.sys file on my computer currently says: Version 5.1.2600.6514 - Time 2/6/2014 7:01 PM
Is it safe to apply this update ?? I was worried that it might accidently rollback the version and time to this 2008 version. I just want to be extra sure before i install this update to see if it resolves the BSOD's from chrome. Just hope it doesnt make the file an older version if that makes sense.
