Re: Serious problems with the latest Windows 10 update


I wouldn't take a chance on this update, based on information in this article.
Here is a quote:
It’s now become apparent that the Windows 10 KB4532695 update has also introduced other serious problems, with Windows Latest reporting that users are complaining that as soon as they’ve installed the update, the sound stops working on their PC.
According to Windows Latest, one user on Microsoft’s community forum complained that “I installed the update Saturday afternoon and immediately the sound stopped working,” with Windows 10 now not recognising their speakers.
Not only is that incredibly annoying, but, rather worryingly, it seems the problem didn’t go away once the user uninstalled the update - and it even persisted after they performed a full reinstall
I don't think that problems that are widespread enough to receive the degree of attention this update has can be blamed, for the most part on user neglect or error.  True, this article says for some users.  How many is that?  I would imagine in beta testing, many bugs affect a minority of users, but they are real and are fixed.

I checked the article with two other sources and they both stated the same things with additional information.  One source said that many people aren't affected but for those who are affected, there are a wide variety of possible problems and loss of audio is one.  I wouldn't be surprised if a USB sound card would work but why take chances on that or a large number of other possible bugs occurring?
Regarding Kim Komando's accuracy, I find oversimplifications and exaggerations at times, but I find most information to be either accurate or reasonably so.

Gene is correct that this is an optional update and it does not install unless you activate the Download and install link on the Windows Update pane.

I have also found that Kim Komando is far from the most reliable source on anything Windows related.  She's wrong as much, or more, as she's right, so consider the source.
