  • Yet another Win10 version 1903 cumulative update video bug: Installing this month’s first cumulative update clobbers some Intel video drivers

    Mayank Parmar at Windows Latest has connected the dots on another Win10 version 1903 cumulative update KB 4517389 bug. (See the next post for yet another unacknowledged bug.)

    Per Parmar:

    If you install Windows 10 KB4517389 (Build 18362.418) on a PC that has Intel display driver version or possibly other versions, basic features like Start menu, Windows Search or Google Chrome will render incorrectly… At the time of writing this story, more than 60 users have confirmed display issues on Microsoft’s community forum. Users have documented the following bugs:

    • Windows Search and Internet Explorer with ‘X’ across dialog and links
    • Triangled images in Microsoft Word.
    • Chrome rendering a black screen.

    This one hasn’t been acknowledged by Microsoft, either.

    Looks to me like the folks running the Release Status Information page are asleep at the wheel.

    UPDATE: Details in Computerworld Woody on Windows.
