[News] Windows 10 updates continue giving users headaches

Hello Mi Fan's!!!

Things don’t look to good for a company that’s supposedly cleaning up its update act. Microsoft has stated that it’s taking a break from making big feature changes this year to give way to fixing bugs and polishing features. But if these two successive cumulative updates are any indication, the company might be a long way from regaining users’ trust in updates that won’t break things as much as they fix them.

The cumulative update under the name KB4512941 was supposed to bring improvements to the current Windows 10 1903 version. Instead, it has brought two major problems to those updating to the latest set of patches. One is that Cortana has reportedly started using up an abnormal amount of CPU. The second problem has reportedly rendered the Windows 10 Search bar useless.

Microsoft later released the KB4515384 update to address those issues and may have succeeded in doing that. Unfortunately, it also seems to have introduced new bugs that may be even worse than what it fixed. In other words, a typical Windows 10 update experience.


Some users have reported that installing this latest update will break networking features on Windows 10 PCs. It supposedly disables both Wi-Fi and even Ethernet connectivity and no amount of reinstalling drivers fixes it. The only way to get networking, and, therefore, Internet access, is to roll back the particular update in question. Considering the first problematic update, users are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

These two are just the latest in a string of updates that cause users problems while promising and, to be fair, delivering fixes to other problems. It has almost become a common occurrence but shouldn’t be a reason to let the status quo remain. More than just spending a whole release to polish, Microsoft needs to also clean up its update development and testing process.

I have a laptop with Window 10 & trust me, I hereby confirm regret having this laptop. Honestly speaking I rather use my still faithful Mi Pad which is much more efficient. Thanks to Xiaomi I am still using it without any hitch.

Microsoft doesn't seem to test the new updates properly (most of the time fixes for known bugs) before releasing them because things like this keep happening and that could be reduced or avoided, but also some problems seem to be related to windows language/region version because I'm using the latest Windows 10 (May update) with every update and driver updated, and I don't have issues at all luckily, in fact the last update fixed windows sandbox that didn't worked before (an error message appeared when trying to use it and after searching for a solution, the supposed problem was that windows sandbox needed the system to be in English). They need to improve their updating methods because when something fails, the problem could be very annoying.
