Microsoft's latest fix for Windows 10 breaks something else

I'm not at all saying that no one has issues, I'm just saying that those issues are not nearly as widespread as some of these clickbait articles would have you believe.
Did you search for the issue? If not, well, that is not much of a sample size.

Also, you can check in installed updates to see if you have the patch. Its KB number is mentioned in the article. If you do have the patch, consider yourself among the chosen ones. :laughing:
Lol when you have as much code as software like the windows operating system has, there are always going to be bugs, that's just a fact. Software development is like that, so I'm just saying that your facepalm star trek meme is not really necessary IMO.
IMO, this is a bogus argument. I have been running openSuSE on other machines and have had nowhere near the problems that I have had with updates on some of my Windohs 10 PCs. openSuSE is an open-source project, too. I think it is quite laughable that an open-source Linux distro and its updates is arguably more stable than Windohs 10 from M$.

That's not funny. It's 4 years old OS.
Recently I've decided to buy new PC, and since new stuff I've bought supports only Win 10 I've decided - What'a hack, I'm gonna give It a try.
My work laptop has Windows 10, and with some tinkering and some pains, It's kinda working, what can go wrong, right?
Wrong!
What worked with Windows 7, now currently not working on Windows 10.
Explorer.exe experience memory leaks when moving data from external backups to my HDD, both 16 GB of physical and 24GB of virtual runs out faster than You could say "640K ought to be enough for anyone" - system crashes.
For the same reason Defraggler crashes, Duplicate Cleaner crashes.
Video players can hang and wait for 2 straight minutes before start playing a file.
But when running all the benchmark You could think of - It gives Me numbers You could find on the internet for the specific hardware.
I suppose It crashes because It doesn't keep up with sending all This data to Microsoft servers?
Seriously, how can You f*ck up something like that? Windows 7 just worked. Win 10 should be just an incremental upgrade. Why doesn't it work?
And how come tech community's power users, like for example TechSpot staff, doesn't put up some fight?
Is It working for You and I'm just imagining thing?
I'm like after a second reinstall, both from MS site, both on different pendrives.
I'm out of ideas.
Windows 8.1 drivers were supported for z370 but they dissapeared from official sites.
That's something that European Comission should take a look at. Seriously, MS should be fined into oblivion. I got a $1000 brick that I cannot work with the way I worked with 2014 i5-4690k.

I don't want to use Cortana. In 1809 I disabled it with GPO. I disabled bing ads in the start menu too.
In 1903, I started getting Bing ads in the start menu again despite the GPO saying "no".

Now, they patched Windows and if I leave the "No ads in start menu", I get CPU runaway on all my new laptops. So, I had to turn off the request to stop showing me ads, even though it was showing them already.

So I search for "update" in the start menu and instead of "Windows Updates" I get "Sports Update from MSN".

I don't want to use Cortana. I don't want to see Bing ads. Microsoft is ignoring my choices and forcing me to change settings in order to use my computer.

I got a bigger problem with windows 10...

Sometimes when im watching a youtube video, the pc restarts and sometimes enters a boot loop

That didnt use to happen in windows 7
Same thing happened to my home and my work computers. Turns out the updated defaulted all displays to 59HRz refresh rate. I changed each one to correct refresh in display settings and have had no further problems.

I defaulted my monitor to 72 hz and changed each one to the correct refresh rate, I still had the same problem

Its kinda weird because it normally happens when the video is about to end lol

No problems here.....

I'm running Windows XP-SP2 without any Microsoft updates on the Internet without any issues

No Malware, No Crashes, and everything works every time I use it

Sure, if I were to listen to Microsoft, EVERYTHING would be perpetually broken and I would be on an endless treadmill to nowhere........just like YOU!

If I need 64 bit programs......well...
I'm still on day 1 of the 90 day trial for Windows 8.1 Enterprise after nearly 10 years of use and that works far better than Windows 10

Did you use the POSready 2009 registry trick to update windows xp?

Unfortunately...I'm not going to expose my methods for properly disabling cortana because if it's properly disabled you literally can't search for anything at all. Secondly you should be using OpenShell anyways as a start menu. Their latest release and betas are on github.

If Windows 10 is as bad as everything says it is we'd be having article after article after article every day of the week, non-stop from morning to night. These issues are very isolated issues or again, as I said before, we'd be having far more people complaining. You'd be seeing it on the front page of every technology web site you can possibly think of from morning to night. You wouldn't be able to escape the coverage of the issues since every day it would be right there on the front page. Microsoft would be the topic from morning to night, every day of the week.

I contribute all of the hate about Windows 10 to just plain trolls and haters because haters are going to hate. The minority often screams with the loudest voices. Meanwhile, the vast majority of people have no issues at all (including myself).
"vast majority" lol.
Why aren't you seeing it plastered all over the internet? Because it's so common people blow it off as "well, it IS the worst OS, ever" and continue to punch holes in the wall. Kind of like how credit card theft and ID theft was big news. Now the theft has to be in the billions to even be bothered reporting on it. Scary times we live in, where nobody gives a crap about anyone but themselves. Hence the blanket statement of "vast majority" simply because only they don't seem to have issues. Especially when said person only uses it for email. Meanwhile you see droves of people yelling about it and all people do is call them trolls and look the other direction.

I am dual booting Win8.1 pro with Win10 Pro but 8.1 is my daily OS, and it remains that way till 8.1 support is ended.

I noticed this search bug a while ago. I also have had search problems before where search wouldn't find almost anything. It took them months to fix it. This is the standard Microsoft holds these days. Absolute and utter horseshit. Let's not forget how Windows 10 became "the most popular OS".

Damn I must be a computer genius to never have seen a single one of these problems ever, on any of the dozens of machines Ive built. My main rig is customized to hell with various reg tweaks, scripts, disabled apps even Windows Search on my Surface... Nothing. No problems, ever.

Its most likely an end user issue, or restricted to a certain circumstance. I feel bad for most of you it sounds like you dont really know how to use a pc! Mac has got you covered they are trying to distance themselves from "personal computer" as much as possible.

My issue is that mu computer will shut down in the middle of doing something or when I just walk away and let it go into sleep mode.

Somewhere in Seattle a developer is going "I told you to scope time for automated regression testing." In the same place a VP at Microsoft is going "look at the 15% we saved by offshoring QA in Q2" and getting a bonus.
