[German]Surprisingly Microsoft has released another (reliability) update KB4058043 for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on December 15, 2017. Here are some hints for this (reliability) update.


The regular December 2017 patchday for Windows was on December 12, 2017. It seems that Microsoft did not have fixed all issues with the latest cumulative update for Windows 10 V1709. Three days after regular patchday, on 15.12.2017, Microsoft released another reliability update KB4058043 for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. A German blog reader left a comment about that update (thanks to schattenmensch for this tip). I started a test machine and the update was also offered to me.

    Ive been having weird issues with Microsoft this week which can be tied to their updates. The first started on Wednesday… Dec 12 there mustve been an update and it installed – when I went to use it Wednesday morning I couldn't type a few words without the cursor disappearing and having to reclick it multiple times. (So typing this paragraph right now would have been incredibly frustrating)

    After 12 hours with Microsoft techs who checked my keybord drivers and stuff, then decided to do a system restore, after which I couldn't reboot the machine, and then they installed a whole new Windows 10 it was working great… (again though I lost an entire day of work because I was tied up with this thing… and finished working on it at 2:30 am) Well today I had to install KB 4058043 and the issue with the cursor returned. In addition the screen display was messed up (looked like red static) I unistalled it and it was working okay, but now the computer redownloaded it and I'm sure will install itself again at some point.

    Any help or suggestions. I really can't deal with Microsoft again, nor deal with computer issues. I'm by no means a computer guy in terms of understanding programming – but I rely on this thing for work thoroughly on a daily basis. Any help would be appreciated

      Sorry, can't assist with Windows 10 and it's messy auto updates. Use Windows 7, macOS or Linux – or try How to block Windows 10 updates.

      I know, this isn't helpful – but here I'm still on Windows 7 for my production environment and will move to Linux till 2020.
