Millions of Microsoft Windows 10 are now in for another challenge as they are warned of another serious risk accompanying a serious update.

Microsoft shipped the latest Windows 10 update that was supposed to bring a solution to an existing problem. Windows Update, KB4512941, that was intended to fix multiple problems to millions of Windows 10 users seems to do otherwise.

How It Works

The trouble starts with a simple Windows Update button saying “Check for Updates.” A “Download and Install Now” option will then appear.

Since the update is an optional or feature update only clicking the prompt leads to the Windows Update KB4512941. This advances PCs to Build 18362.329.

Windows Update KB4512941 contains multiple problem fixes such as Windows Sandbox, black screen issues. The update also comprises an ineffective Cortana fix that eats up 40 percent of the device’s CPU performance consuming a quite a large amount of battery life and 50 percent PC power.

Why did Microsoft release the update anyway?

Sources revealed that the Microsoft Windows Update KB4512941 was beta tested on 10 million Windows Insiders. Right then and there the Cortana fix problems already manifested as per the insider allegations.

The Windows Insiders that encountered the KB4512941 problem, repeatedly report the issue to the management allegedly. However, in spite of the continuous effort and attempts to have the problem attended to, the report was ignored.

What does Microsoft have to say?

A statement released by the Microsoft regarding the Windows Update KB4512941 problem claims that the company is not aware of the issues arising with the most recent update, contrary to the allegations that the insiders released. The software giant further promised that they will be better.
