Microsoft releases KB4073291, KB4075199 and KB4075200 for Windows 10

Microsoft released another batch of updates for various versions of the company's Windows 10 operating system.

This is the third batch of patches that address the AMD boot loop bug directly caused by earlier updates, or add more protections to the operating system.

The first batch of patches resolved the unbootable state issue for specific AMD devices on machines running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

The second batch of updates brought the patches KB4057142, KB4057144, and KB4073290 for Windows 10.

Microsoft released the updates KB4073291 for 32-bit versions of Windows 10 version 1709, the Enterprise-only update KB4075199, and the Enterprise- and Education-only update KB4075200 yesterday.

KB4073291 KB4075200 KB4075199

KB4073291

The description of the update is very short:  This update provides additional protections for 32-Bit (x86) version of Windows 10 1709 after you install January 3, 2018—KB4056892 (OS Build 16299.192).

The list of known issues is rather long:

  • The Update History reports that the update KB4054517  failed to install with Error 0x80070643 even though it installed correctly. You can verify that by running a manual check for updates. The failed updated should not be returned when you run the check.
  • When calling CoInitializeSecurity, the call will fail if passing RPC_C_IMP_LEVEL_NONE under certain conditions. Microsoft suggests that admins change the authentication level parameter to RPC_C_AUTHN_LEVEL_CALL.
  • The update may cause stop errors or reboots caused by compatibility issues with some antivirus products.

KB4075199

This update applies to Windows 10 Enterprise versions only and is specifically for the initial version of Windows 10.

The update fixes the unbootable state issues that some AMD devices may enter after installing the January 2018 security updates for the operating system.

The update shares the CoInitializeSecurity issue described above. The patch is offered to devices with compatible antivirus software. It is available on the Microsoft Update Catalog website as well as a manual download.

KB4075200

This update is for Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education editions only that are on Windows 10 version 1511.

It addresses the unbootable state issue with select AMD devices. The update fixes another issue besides that. Log off may not work correctly so that "repeated queries for user credentials" are displayed.

The update shares the known issues with KB4075199. You can download it from the Microsoft Update Catalog manually as well.

Closing Words

Windows 10 RTM and Windows 10 version 1511 have reached end of support. That's likely the reason why patches are offered only to Enterprise and Education versions.

The updates that Microsoft released this month caused lots of confusion and issues. (via Born)

Now You: How was your updating experience this month so far?

    But they are releasing patches to fix broken or poor patches….and without documentation, or very much of it, how can anyone make a value-judgement?

    I didn’t have any problem because I disabled Windows Update(I don’t want to be an unpaid tester). When new updates are released, I wait for 7-14 days and if people don’t report any problem after updating, I update too. So obviously, I didn’t update my Windows this month…

      Woody Leonhard asked yesterday……

      ‘Patch Wednesday [leaves] many of us wondering what we did to deserve such abuse’

      Yes indeed…….we are wondering.

      This time it was Wednesday and not Tuesday, but what difference does it make? They’ll try and break something regardless of the day of the week.

      ‘Hey Microsoft, why not break something 365/24/7 …. you know you really want to.

    @Karol. You are not an unpaid tester. Just and underpaid one. You got your copy of windows 10 for Free. Also you are a human “test lad rat” that is being monitored every time you use your PC with W10, for things you do on it, sites you visit etc, building another profile in MS huge customer profile database.

    No pun intended.

      And I still can’t shake the feeling that it’s overpriced.

    Woody Leonhard (yesterday) says………:

    ……..The patch carnage this month has been horrendous.

    ……..machines are dropping like flies.

    ……..Once again, the entire patching situation has turned into a steaming pile of cow dung.

    And then goes on to quote Poster @Sessh

    Microsoft issues a Windows 10 update that renders people’s computers useless forcing the casual computer user (read: most PC owners) to have to pay money out of pocket to fix a problem directly caused by Microsoft’s incompetence and was not in any way their fault? How does that even make sense? It’s amazing the hoops users are expected to jump through just to make their W10 PC’s work at all which now includes doing BIOS updates to prevent said updates from ruining your computer? Seriously? There are people that are actually cool with this level of incompetence? It’s unbelievable what some people are willing to put up with these days.

    Cow Dung?

    I’d say Woody is being very retrained and polite here.

    MS should abandon the mess that is Windows 10 and develop a Linux distro based on Arch with fully open source Windows as a Desktop Environment WDE like KDE.

      +1.

      There is no one, and I mean NO ONE, at Microsoft, these days, that knows what the Kernel code (still Windows NT/2000) in Windows 10 does, and why. The programmers, project managers.. long left the company. That is the reason why every monthly update breaks Windows PCs. That is the reason why Windows 10 has 50% more security bugs that Windows 7…

      Yes, Microsoft should scrap Windows OS and develop a new OS based on Linux. No backward compatibility, no x86 emulation.

        >No backward compatibility

        MS will have to make Linux distro backward compatible with windows programs and games at least which they can easily do it.

      I had a laptop with Vista for 10 yrs. I disabled updates the last year and a half of it. Now with Win10 I’m back with all the hit and miss updating it tries to do. Think I’ll just forget about it and worry about only the big feature updates coming in ’18.

        There are 100’s of Linux distro’s, barely any hit and miss with updates.
        There is only one Windows, hit and miss with updates.
