The original idea of Windows as a service was that your PC is
supposed to get updated without you ever know and update
process was supposed to be seamless. However, a variety of
substantial issues have cropped up for Windows 10 owners and
Microsoft’s latest update is also causing a series of problems.
Last week Microsoft released Windows 10 KB4532695, a
non-security update for Win10 version 1903 and 1909. Microsoft
said the update includes fixes for File Explorer Search bar
bugs that have been reported for 3 months, but users discovered
that the ‘fixed’
File Explorer still offers a crummy experience.
KB4532695 is having lots and lots of problems, ranging from the
Blue screen of death (BSOD) to breaking down the
fundamental features. As per the new reports, KB4532695
disables sound and internet connectivity for some users.
In the Microsoft community forum, many users are reporting that
the latest cumulative update kills the audio or sound adapters.
“I installed the update Saturday afternoon and immediately the
sound stopped working. I’ve rolled the patch back…no
resolution. I’ve tried to update the drivers but Windows tells
me that it doesn’t recognize my speakers. Last night, I did a
complete reinstall of Windows, nothing. It was working
perfectly before the patch installed on February 1. Will this
be corrected soon? I’ve followed every piece of advice in
every forum without resolution,” an annoyed user wrote in a
After deploying the optional update, some PCs have had their
networking functionality killed, according to several posts on
Microsoft’s own forum, as well as other forums submitted.
The problem appears to be affecting both Ethernet or wired
connections, and Wi-Fi, and it’s reportedly hitting different
brands of network adapters. Apparently, these are pretty
frustrating issues as users are unable to use their internet
connection at full speed on Windows 10.
“I’m on a Fiber optical connection with Wi-Fi and I’m getting a
less than 1mb/s reception while my other wifi enabled device
running Android are doing ok,” a user said.
“Thank god I decided to update it on the weekends to later
realize that my either internal and external WiFi adapters
STOPPED working. That’s on a laptop without Ethernet. You
cannot roll back the update, Troubleshoot app cannot help (it
is useless in 90% of cases), Network reset function couldn’t
resolve the issue as well,” another angry user on Microsoft
It seems that the only guaranteed solution here is to simply
uninstall the cumulative update or rollback to a previous
version of Windows 10 from Settings, which isn’t a great
workaround as it leaves you with a broken File Explorer and
other problems of course.
To uninstall the update, simply head to the Settings app and
click on ‘View update history’. On the next page, click on
‘Uninstall updates’ and select KB4532695 in Control Panel.
Windows 10 Build 18363.628/18362.628 seem to be a patch that
causes far more trouble than it resolves for some users.
People aren’t happy with Windows Update quality and some
folks are asking Microsoft to hire their QA team again.
As more and more users are reporting bugs with this particular
update, we might get some acknowledgement from Microsoft about
these fresh problems soon.
