  • Widespread problems with last week’s Win10 1703 patch, KB 4022716

    There’s a reason why I keep recommending that you avoid Windows 10 Creators Update. It ain’t baked yet.

    Case in point: KB 4022716, the June 27 cumulative update for Win10 version 1703, which is supposed to bring the version up to build 15063.447.

    There’s a lengthy Microsoft Answers forum thread about how KB4022716 kills web browser Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer. Another one about black screens with flickering cursor after unlocking, which is repeated on a Lenovo forum. A laundry list of additional problems.

    Comodo says:

    We strongly advise Comodo users not to update to latest MS update KB4022716, which is available for Windows 10 users till they have new fixed version of Comodo internet security products installed.

    Some people are reporting that the patch has been pulled. Others say that it’s still being offered.

    If you ignored my advice and upgraded to Win10 Creators Update, you would be well advised to avoid the latest cumulative update.
