Windows 10 and Windows 11 update 'breaks' popular browsers

It is reported that Vivaldi, Brave, and a few other browsers continue to work – but that's mediocre consolation for those who have all their bookmarks and passwords saved in Chrome. Fortunately, this error does not appear to all users, and you can fix it by rolling back update KB5012599.

If you encounter this problem and cannot use the browser, use the instructions of Layhfaker to remove the update.
