Microsoft: Windows KB5006674, KB5006670 updates break printing
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-windows-kb5006674-kb5006670-updates-break-printing/

Bl00dy brilliant, MS breaks printing with a KB (or two in this case) yet again, from the past issues and KBs breaking printing. You would have thought/hoped they had learnt from these.  Fortunately for me I don't do network printing, but direct connection.

The break must only be affecting certain printers or systems. No problem here with printing
