Security Update for Windows KB4579311 causes issues to drivers.

This update caused my touchpad driver to stop responding and since the update, my touchpad has become totally useless!!
Also, it caused Network Driver issues on my other system.

I too have touchpad issues - after installing this update on my Asus T100TAM, my touchpad has been slightly erratic with phantom clicks and the cursor twitching around in an extremely annoying way. The problem does not occur if I disable the touchpad and use an external Bluetooth mouse.  I have also had two bluescreens in the 5 days since installing this update - those have practically never occurred before.

I'd uninstall this update, but when I select it on the list of installed updates, the "uninstall" button disappears. If I try using Command Prompt (wusa /uninstall /kb:4579311), I get the error "Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB4579311) is required by your computer and cannot be uninstalled."

Mine is audio issues but I also have the missing "Uninstall" button and get the same message when I try to uninstall via command prompt.

Ditto here on the uninstall problem, though in my case this is causing an endless explorer.exe crash loop. I don't know what else to do.
