It can’t be said be how it’s happening, but almost every Windows Update released creates more problems than it solves.
Sadly, that’s also the case with the latest optional update KB4532695 for versions 1903 and 1909 that was released on January 29.
Spotted by Windows Latest, various users took to Microsoft Answers forum and reported all the different bugs that have surfaced on their Windows 10 PCs after installing the said update.
The list of issues includes slow boot times, sound not working, Bluetooth not working, BitLocker not working, and blue screen of death (BSOD), to name a few.
However, a user also commented that their machine is working fine after installing KB4532695 and other suggested updates. So, we can assume that the problems in question aren’t affecting all the Windows 10 computers.
As a matter of fact, KB4532695 is an optional update that means it won’t install on its own and bring dark clouds over user PC. A user noted that their system is working fine after removing and then reinstalling the update again.
By the way, speaking of fixes, another interesting twist in the story is that KB4532695 doesn’t seem to do anything for the Windows 10 File Explorer issues it was originally meant to fix.
However, it’s not that Microsoft is sitting idle and doing nothing to tackle the unstable Windows Updates. Recently, the company announced changes in how it will receive and process drivers updates from manufacturers so that buggy driver versions don’t end up being delivered to the users.
Still, if you’re skeptical, the obvious solution is not to install the update or remove it from your machine if you have it already. Maybe, Microsoft will issue a fix in future updates.
