Microsoft Fixes Bugs in Windows 10 October Update
Windows 10 Oct 2018 update has been revisited by Microsoft to fix a number of problems, namely the dreaded file-deleting bug that made it temporarily unavailable.
The new build has been released to Windows insiders for preview testing. Version 1809 of Windows 10 Oct 2018 update contains fixes for that bug.
Several issues are fixed in the update, namely driver compatibility.
In this preview, the build puts the original 17763 up to 17763.104, linking to the update KB4464455, which cumulates the updates. It has been released to Insiders of Slow and Fast rings.
Microsoft has yet to release the information of which driver compatibility issues are being fixed. We do know that faulty Intel and HP drivers from Windows 10 version 1803 and 1809 have had rolled out fixes that remove them from affected systems.
Buggy driver issues from HP have triggered users to install the first update for the 1809 version. This version fixed issues causing deleted user profiles under certain instances.
In addition, Microsoft fixed issues associated with the battery life optimization, Connected Standby. In some instances, apps became unresponsive when resumed from Connected Standby.
During the version 1809 release to public users, it was noticed that CPU usage was reported inaccurately from Task Manager. This problem was present during a last-minute bug fixing attempt by Microsoft.
“We fixed issues where incorrect details were shown in Task Manager under Processes tab,” Microsoft was reported to note about this build.
Several issues causing third-party antivirus products and virtualization products were fixed by Microsoft, but with no description of compatibility issues.
It hasn’t been released when new Windows 10 version 1809 will be released. When the preview became available with fixes for the file-deleting bug, Microsoft updated the Feedback Hug app, allowing user to report the issues being experienced.
The re-release of 1809 will be issued when feedback and diagnostic data is received from Windows Insiders to confirm the problems have been sufficiently dealt with.
