New Version of Windows 10 October Update Hits Insiders – More Issues Resolved

Probably Hire a New QA Team

Well, Windows 10 October update created more issues than features it introduced. It ruined many computers before Microsoft had to take a drastic step and pull it back in. It is rare for Microsoft to pull an update but it seems the company’s QA team really did a poor job of testing before final release.

Thankfully, Microsoft is working to fix many of the issues faced by its users. The final rollout is still some time away but Microsoft has pushed a new build for Windows 10 October update to the insiders.

The latest preview build takes the original 17763 to 17763.104 which is linked to the cumulative October update, KB4464455.

According to the patch notes, the update deals with many issues with drivers compatibility.

  • We have fixed the issue where the incorrect details were being shown in Task Manager under the “Processes” tab.
  • We fixed an issue where in certain cases IME would not work in the first process of a Microsoft Edge user session.
  • We fixed an issue where in some cases applications would become unresponsive after resuming from Connected Standby.
  • We fixed several issues causing application compatibility problems with 3rd-party antivirus and virtualization products.
  • We fixed several issues with driver compatibility.

There is no mentioned of any specific drivers that are fixed but just last week Microsoft pulled faulty Intel and HP drivers that came with Windows 10 build 1803 and 1809. There is no information about the re-release of version 1809 at this time.  The preview version introduced file deleting bug.

If you encounter any issues with the latest Windows 10 October Update build you can contact Microsoft through its updated Facebook HUB as well. It allows users to reports bugs based on the severity of the problem.

The update will release to the public once it’s properly tested in the insider program.
