Windows Microsoft WPD 2/22/2016 update fix after failed

It has come to our attention that Microsoft is at it again with regards to sudden updates that arrive on the computers of users without any explanation.

Worst of all, it appears that the latest update of this kind is causing some frustrating for a lot of you and we are specifically talking about the Windows Microsoft WPD update labelled “2/22/2016 12:00:00 AM – 5.2.5326.4762”.

As far as we’re aware, this message has popped up with an instruction to install this week, despite the fact that the description references a date back in 2016 as you can see from the image below:

The problem is that the Microsoft WPD 2/22/2016 update fails to install for some reason and even worse is that it then causes problems when you try to sync your Windows Phone device to the computer.

There does appear to be a temporary fix in place if this is affecting you and you can see it over on the Windows forums, with a group of users already saying that the fix works for them after digging through some settings on device manager.
