luisam posted a topic in Tech NewsUsers are now reporting issues with Windows 10 cumulative update KB4493509, which was published on April 9 as the Patch Tuesday release for version 1809 (October 2018 Update). While Microsoft has only acknowledged two different issues in this cumulative update, I’m seeing various reports of substantial PC slowdowns, freezes, and system hangs after installing KB4493509. Several Windows 10 users complain that this cumulative update made their computers unresponsive especially on the first boot after the install. Others say they experience occasional freezes, with certain features like the right-click context menu on the desktop apparently broken down. A post on Microsoft Community forums, as well as several messages on TenForums indicate that KB4493509 sometimes causes occasional freezes despite a seemingly successful installation. “After a few hours of use after the update, the entire machine locked up, mouse & all. Could not enter Task Manager, held power button until it shut off. Event Viewer indicates many DCOM errors,” one use explains, with another one adding the following: “Exactly what happened to me too. I pushed reset button and after boot the computer freezes on the windows login screen. I was able to boot up in safe mode, uninstalled this update, booted normally and everything is working again.”Removing the update fixes everythingI’m also seeing some isolated reports of issues caused with various antivirus software, but in this case, the problems don’t seem to be as widespread as the ones mentioned above. Earlier today, Microsoft acknowledged similar system freezes caused by Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 monthly rollups, but no word has been said on a bug hitting Windows 10 cumulative updates. The only workaround available at this point is to completely remove the update from Safe Mode and then hide it to avoid it from being reoffered to the system. Microsoft hasn’t acknowledged the bugs just yet, so it’s not yet exactly clear what is causing these issues and whether a fix would be shipped. https://news.softpedia.com/news/windows-10-cumulative-update-kb4493509-causing-system-slowdowns-other-issues-525644.shtml
