Windows 10 has received a new cumulative update that finally
fixes an issue where the TCP/IP (network component) suffers
from the ‘deadlock’ problem. In some cases, users discovered
that their Windows 10 device was throttled down to run slowly
due to a deadlock in the TCP/IP.
Windows 10’s performance issue was first reported after the
release of the Chromium-based Edge. This was fixed after
Microsoft pulled the harmful update that had been slowing down
some PCs and replaced it a better version that works
Apparently, there’s another performance-related problem that
causes the operating system to stop working or responding.
Microsoft recently confirmed that a deadlock in TCP/IP could be
leaving users with performance issues and the bug was fixed in
a preview build last month.
“[We’ve addressed] an issue with a deadlock in the Transmission
Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCPIP) driver that causes
the operating system to stop working or stop responding,” the
tech giant said on October
Windows 10 KB4586781 (Build 19042.630), Microsoft has
tackled the gremlin for everyone. It’s not clear exactly what
Microsoft means by ‘deadlock’, but deadlock term usually refers
to a problem where processes are blocked when each process is
waiting for the system to release resources.
With this patch applied, in theory, those users who have
previously been affected by sudden system freezes should be
able to use the system properly. Any improvement in performance
is always welcome.
We haven’t experienced any performance issues, but some users
certainly have going by reports in the Feedback Hub.
In some cases, TCP/IP also causes a memory leak and crashes
devices with Blue Screen of Death. Hopefully, a matching fix
for Blue Screen crashes is also included in this cumulative
update and more fixes are in the pipeline for the Windows
