This update only includes quality improvements and no new OS features. Key improvements include:

  • Addressed issue where, after removing apps, they’re reinstalled on every restart, logoff, and login.
  • Addressed issue where localization of the error output from a JET database is broken. Only English error strings are reported.
  • Security updates to Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows kernel, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows TPM, Windows NTLM, Device Guard, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft Windows DNS, Windows Server, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server.

    I would not recommend people to use Windows 10. It’s still beta and is being changed with every patch. A windows is stable only when there is no changes to it anymore. I can see windows 8.1 or 7 are X times better than windows 10. Stability is 100% on Windows 7 or 8.1. With Windows 10, my 8 month old laptop is playing crazy. Reinstalled Windows 8.1 and perfect. Microsoft should stop changing windows 10 and just release updates.

      it’s been stable since 10586TH2, there is always security patches and new apps added all the time.. works very well and fast..

    • OziCash

      have you tried version 1709? (OS build 16299.15)

      • DardaniaLion

        Yes, I have Tried 1709 and new problems came. For example, when I installed 1709, I could not open startup menu. I wasted 4 hours with Microsoft and my antivirus costumer support. I was sitting next to my pc and was checking why it happened. When I did a full scan on my own, I found out that new update (1709) does not disable windows defender automatically when you install a antivirus. The older update did not recognize my firewall. I disabled windows firewall, installed my private firewall but Windows could not see it and was always giving me messages that I was at risk. No matter what you say, Windows 10 is BETA and this means full of bugs and issues.

          you need to let the Antivirus company know about it, Windows 10 from the fast ring is BETA, the Slow ring is final and should be stable, i use Eset for antivirus, it disables windows software and takes it’s place.. I know about the start up problem, it happened to me with a version after 15063, i think it was 1704 that was causing the problem.. I usually have an Acronis clone of my hard drive and do upgrades from 10586TH2, i skipped from that to 1709.. solved the problem.. I understand most people don’t play around with software like i do, but they should stay on the slow ring releases.. otherwise Windows 10 is the best… there is also a “test mode” you can go into to install unsigned drivers (not Safe mode), but it is not legal to continuously stay in that mode and use Windows.. not many people know about Test Mode

            I’m actually done with Windows 10. Will not use again till something new comes. I don’t understand why Microsoft adds so many useless apps to it.

            I wish it was like Windows 7 and should you as a user want to install all those extra apps you’re free to do so but from installation, windows should be clean from all those apps.
