All the issues of Windows 10 version 1803 you may run into

Windows, Windows 10

If you have installed the latest feature update for Windows 10, the April 2018 Update, already on a PC, you may have run into one or multiple issues already using the new version of Windows 10.

While the bulk of users probably won't, activity on forums and support sites indicate that at least part of the early adopter userbase ran into issues.

I ran the update yesterday evening on a machine and encountered several issues so far on the PC. My issues are for the most part different from issues that users reported on Reddit, Microsoft's Answer forum and other places.

Feel free to share your experience in the comment section below. I divided the issues into major and other. Major affect lots (or even all) users.

Major issues

microphone issues

  • Google Chrome may hang the entire device. Microsoft is working on a patch, apparently.
  • Microphone not detected anymore? Sound settings or features not working? Check Settings > Privacy Microphone and test if "Let apps use my microphone" resolves the issue.
  • No microcode update to protect the system against Spectre attacks. Microsoft released updates only for Windows 10 version 1709 and earlier and has not incorporated the updates into Windows 10 version 1803. If you installed the update on the PC in an earlier version and ran the update afterward, you will notice that the PC is no longer protected. Tip: run InSpectre to verify.

Other issues

windows 10 version 1803 issues

  • Check Telemetry data collecting settings under Privacy > Diagnostics & feedback to make sure that they have not been reset.
  • Microsoft Edge won't start. A reset does not help. (my issue)
  • Mouse acceleration and movement seems different to before. Also, reports of mouse lag.
  • Network devices may not be picked up anymore. Reinstall may help.
  • Right-clicks on programs in the Taskbar don't display the context menu.
  • Shutdown does not work properly, neither when executed from the Start Menu nor from the command line. Restart works and should be used instead for the time being.
  • Slow Alt-Tab performance when tabbing out of games. Fix: disable Focus Assist in the options under System > Focus Assist.
  • Some users report that the recovery partition shows up as a drive and that Windows may throw "is nearly full" warnings.I did not experience this, but you may want to run Disk Management  hide it.
  • Speaker enhancements may be reset after the upgrade (speaker properties)
  • The regular Start Menu does not open at all on a system with Start10 installed. Not sure if this is caused by Start10 or something else. (my issue)
  • Thumbnails no longer generated for (most) MKV files.
  • Users report that they can't change the "feedback frequency" setting under Privacy > Diagnostics & feedback anymore. On my system, it states "Windows Insider Program manages this option" even though the PC never joined the program.
  • Windows Defender Security Center won't open. Terminates after you try to launch it.

Now You: did you run into issues after installing the Windows 10 version 1803 update?

    Ugh! OK! I did the update of the windows pro 1803 and it sucked my life. Listening to the news never happen as whenever I try to listen to any video it restart after the BSOD says they gather info and restart. I tried to use both IE and their new browser but same issue. I try to install Chrome it shows the BSOD again and say they gather info and restart again. that is so far as three times they did that. Hate it. I can’t even play any game as it gets into BSOD and same restart as well. I had to put the system on a 400GB and the rams are 8GB,processor pentium dual core 2 3.00GHZ. I used to use it on April 2018 and nothing happened and used it also on 1709 as well and had no issues but now it freezes :(.

    I am having issues with an acer wired keyboard (with the old purple keyboard plug head). It is behaving as if I’m holding down the down arrow key any time I open up a windows menu, but only windows menus. In gamed or other software that I have installed is shows no sign of this behaviour. I’m using a Gateway Desktop with Windows 10 installed and the problem started after I moved to said keyboard from a Logitech Bluetooth one (My wife broke hers and I being the good husband gave her mine). No idea of how to fix it. Only other info that I have about my issue is that around the same time (less than a week before or after) my version of windows started complaining that it needed activated. It has been running windows 10 for years with no such complaint and I’ve lost the install CD. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Really minor and kind of stupid but we now have about 7 windows 10 1803 machines where the calculator just stopped working. It opens and then closes immediately. Not really a key issue, since pretty much everyone has a cell phone, but working through the steps to correct the problem has not worked and now they are saying that the OS probably needs to be reinstalled…

    The update that I installed on Wednesday, 15 August, has gone a long way to fixing my network problem. It’s only taken them THREE MONTHS !!!

    I hadn’t reported this until now, to make sure that it wasn’t a miracle blip, but now I can navigate between laptops in Windows Explorer without the dreaded ‘cannot access’ message. Most of the time ;)

    I was having to use Advanced IP Scanner>Explore to access files on the network.

  8. Angry Tech said on July 31, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    This continued problem with Microsoft annual updates, feature roll-outs or what ever term they choose to use is infuriating.
    Most recent problem, brand new from Microsoft direct Surfacebook Pro unable to join domain, over 2 weeks of frustration and unable to pinpoint the problem when trying to join local domain. Query for AD, locates all 3 DNS servers, AD server and DHCP server then tells me that it cannot locate the DC, which all 3 are.
    It was determined through trial that version 1803 blocks the ability to join a singlename local domain. So, if domain name is “MYDOMAIN” it doesn’t happen(unable to join), if it is “MYDOMAIN.LOCAL” not an issue(welcome to local domain).
    Two weeks later Microsoft provided a registry hack that is buried in their website to modify registry to fix this, SUCCESS!!!
    Yes, NOPE!! Now it seems that this 1 single machine, this same single brand new surfacebook pro refuses to process any .bat files which we use for installing software packages.
    I found every link to every article and every registry hack and it refuses to process the .bat file. The file is strictly recognized as a text file, no option to use “OPEN WITH” that is not even a part of the dropdown menu. Funny thing is, “OPEN WITH” is available with any other file type and I can choose whatever I need. To further infuriate me, since the .bat file resides on a network share all other computers on the network can see it, can recognize it and process it as a .bat file and NOT just a .txt file.
    Our company is transitioning older machines to newer SFF and I am lucky to have about 10-15 machines that came installed with an older version. Moving forward with this and our strict compliance with PCI I am very apprehensive. My typical install now requires that i turn off all windows update features and hope I can get all the software packages installed prior to any updates, and let’s not forget the “you have 5 minutes to reboot” warnings, no longer offer a chance to postpone the updates, you are just booted off. Trust me, it happened to on of our DC’s running on a Hyper-V that had not been updated for some time and booted me right out.

      The same problem with single label domain by me. Cannot join to Win Server 2003 even if I apply registry “hack”.

    I have downloaded the setup of Windows 10 version 1803 from Media Creation Tool. Everything was gonna well but a particular window after accepting Microsoft policies is telling me to keep nothing in your PC even my personal files, apps etc. There were two more options but both were disabled.
    There are lot of important files in my PC. What should i do?

    1. scylla said on July 28, 2018 at 7:14 pm

      If all your personal DATA files are on C-drive, cancel out of the update and back them up first – save them to an external drive. Hopefully you will have the installation (exe) files, plus licence numbers, for all your apps, and you’ll have to reinstall them.

      This is a holding reply until someone comes along with more expertise, maybe they know how to avoid the reinstallation of apps but I don’t.

      You will need to find their IP address and search manually via RUN. For some reason in this version of Windows, all my networked PCs cannot be seen.

    Upon buying a laptop with this version of Windows 10 already installed it definitively does not display the Desktop Context Menu by right clicking. Right-clicking on the Desktop will cause it to load for an unholy amount of time, and if I am lucky, the context menu might randomly appear out of nowhere, 20 minutes later, after I’ve already given up on using it and have other windows open.

    In conjunction to that, the Desktop folder does not display program icons in its user folder, which are displayed with other hidden programs in the shell:Desktop Link location. There is no way to see Desktop icons for installed programs from the Desktop, when I go there via a Pinned location. These are things that did not manifest on laptop I’ve had since Windows 10’s release. For me, this is a new issue that help threads are saying is mostly likely disabled functionality by the Microsoft team.

    Windows 10 has been a nightmare for ASUS.
    – My AI Suite II broke, the 3-pin fan is loud af!
    – I think my W10 is secretely using i7-4770K’s iGPU, there’s always problems i encounter when installing discreet GPU(ASUS GTX 960)
    – Now, when i reboot, it often skips the Press F2 or Del for UEFI bios message and going directly to WINDOWS BUSY icon, followed by login screen.
    – Seem like WIN10 is suckin’ up my PSU’s energy too…. it’s making funny noises since the update :(
    – Whyyyyyyyyyy why MS why………. why you gotta kill us with stress?

    Had a new issue yesterday. Had a netbook running windows 10 update to 1803. It is kind of amazing to me that this old netbook didn’t have any of the space issues updating that a lot of new laptops are now having. Now the battery seems to not charge correctly. I have tried 3 different adapter plugs. It says its charging like for about 10 minutes then it will stop and the battery will actually start draining while its plugged in. It also now seems to get stuck in limbo when restarting. This could just be the netbook itself or the battery I guess, but it sure seems suspect that it waited to do this stuff until this update.

    i hve had troubles with 2 of my older desktops. both were running windows 10 one version 1703 and the other version 1709. one would not update to 1709 from 1703: message was this pc can not run windows 10;even though it was and had been. The other with 1709 could not update to versio 1803. same message: this computer can not run windows 10. but both had been, and doing it very well till the updates showed up. i had microsoft shut off the updates in both but then the couldn’t get the important security updates and fixes. i have no idea why . A tech somewhere told me that it was likely the processor was too old for the updates components to run , another told me it was because the manufacturer never test those particular models for windows 10 or created drivers and fixes so they would run win 10 . I guess i’m just confused. the short of it is now they are all back to windows 7 32 and 64 bit pro and home premium !

    With the 1803 ‘upgrade’ my FM radio station no longer sees all the network computers, I cannot do ANY recording in Audacity or Free Sound Recorder, and ALL my configuration(s) for Zararadio went to default…and would not reset until I re-installed Zararadio.

    I reverted to the former build, and all problems disappeared. I then RE-INSTALLED 1803…and they all returned.

    Time was wasted for over 16 hours on Tuesday and 160 miles of travel :(

    With 50 volunteers at WDVR we’re riding a ‘time-bomb’ – because when the computer(s) reboot, all the issues will return – with horrible consequences.

    One thing I noticed is that whenever I plug my 64 Gig Lexar Pro SDXC flash card directly into my Lenovo desktop; I get a BSOD that says, “Oops. Something went wrong.! Then it has to accumulate the error information. Stays hung, then you have to do a hard reset to reboot. Doesn’t find solution or fix the issue.

    However, when I used my old Kingston card adapter, it recognizes the card with no issues.

    Thanks Microsoft

    3 computers: Core2 Extreme-based desktop, Gen1 i5-based ASUS laptop, cheap junk RCA Atom-based tablet. 64-bit except 32-bit in the tablet. Pro, Home, “Core” respectively.

    Tablet (abandoned by RCA after 1 year) auto-updated to 1803 the week it came out. No immediate issues, but Settings for Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Microphone, and Camera all had to be changed: despite what the blurb on the page says, Mail/Calendar/People/etc. do NOT any more always have access – you have to turn access on globally on the Settings page then turn off everything but what you want to access the resource. Also, unlike in previous releases, it seems (though not consistently) that the resource access Setting must be “on” for even Win32 apps to access it – these settings never affected legacy application access before. No AV problems on the tablet – canned Avast there a long time ago and Defender works fine. The problem it’s always had with getting confused and restarting the Intel video driver (and sometimes freezing the whole system) seems to be worse – back to what it was in AU – but with care (and turning off the trackpad when typing) it’s controllable.

    ASUS laptop (2010-era, with the final BIOS update from about 2012) auto-updated about 3 weeks after 1803 release, and had all kinds of problems: video and full-system freezes, loss of Mail access (which the Settings tweak didn’t fix), and loss of sound. I reverted to 1709 after about 2 days of fighting it and all was fixed. Auto-updated again in early June and no problems since (after the Settings fixes). As with the tablet, AV has been just Defender for some time after some issues with Avast related to 1709 update.

    Core2 desktop (2007-era, with the final BIOS update from about 2009) auto-updated in the first week of June. Other than the Settings fixes, no problems noted so far, but I haven’t tried all of my software yet and there are some reports floating around that audio software (such as Diamond Cut, which I use) no longer works. Given experience with the others, I nuked Avast after the update (it broke until it also updated, then started spewing all sorts of ads that I had previously blocked, and have gone with just Defender. So far, this ancient machine (with 8GB, SSD boot drive, and GTX750ti GPU) has been the best Windows 10 performer in the house.

    Intel has microcode patches for the Atom in the tablet and the i5 in the laptop, but MS has not yet released them. InSpectre recognizes both as having patches from Intel (though not that they’re unavailable from MS), and that the Core2 will never get them.

    I have 2 laptops that lost the ability to format all external drives and flashdrives. Microsoft has offered to help if I use paid support. I restored laptop back to 1709 and regained the ability to format.

    Shame on you Microsoft … releasing trash then expecting users to pay to fix your mistakes.

  20. Viking said on June 11, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    Defender complains that the security chip needs to be reset. But doing so (accepting the proposal), which involves restarting and accepting the BIOS warning to reset TPM, does not solve the issue. Defender continues to complain about the same thing over and over again in a never ending loop.
    This thing named ‘Hello’ is completely screwed up on 1803 for most PC’s that dates back a few years.

    Our Fame USB microphone causes application hangs / freezes (Audacity doesn’t start or freezes when you change sound settings) and a long boot delay when it is plugged in since I installed Build 1803. It worked well in every other build before.

    Windows10 1803

    Under Bluetooth and other devices, if you enable discoverability on your PC or Laptop, ONCE.,…you will never ever be able to disable it again. Even if you uncheck the
    “Allow Bluetooth devices to find this PC” in order to disable it.

    Bluetooth Settings->Options Tab->Discovery->Allow Bluetooth devices to find this PC
    Unchecking the box, rebooting, ..doesn’t matter. Your Bluetooth devices will still see your
    PC until you turn off bluetooth.

    Anyone who knows how to turn this off through the registry, posting a solution would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Mike said on June 16, 2018 at 9:51 pm

      My tablet (my only Win10 machine with BT) doesn’t have that problem. However, given the issues I had with mail in the laptop, you might want (if you’re still within a month of update) to revert to 1709 where everything works fine. With my laptop, when 1803 came again in June the problems did not reappear. If you can’t revert, you may need to do a “reset” or clean install to get a fresh copy.

    Ever since this update, I have lost the ability to open .DWG files (AutoCAD) from Windows Explorer and have had my wifi on my laptop cut out about 6 to 7 times a day. My other devices connected to the same router don’t cut out so I can only assume it’s because of the update (never had a problem with wifi on my laptop before).

    1803 – a POS update
    I was running 1709 and decided to try the update to 1803. Everything seem to be okay except for:
    1. I removed my windows 7 games I had installed. Said they were incompatible with this version of windows. BS. I simply reinstalled them and they work fine.
    2. Deleted my Gagets I had installed since they were not compatible with this version. I simply downloaded the new version and they work again.
    3. The biggest issue for me was the “Controlled Folder Access” with Defender. I was writing a Windows Office 2007 document file using Word, and when I decided to save it to my documents folder, it would not save it. Said I winword.exe has been blocked by making modifications to my documents folder. WTF? It’s a MS Office program.

    After these experiences, I rolled back to 1709. I also now have updates deferred to 18 months since I’m on the pro version of 10. Glad I’m testing out 10 on a spare laptop on a SSD that I can remove and insert my other SSD with Linux Mint 18.3 which has been working perfectly. Not really sure what I’m going to do when 7 expires, as I really don’t like 10, especially the forced updates which are what was called in the past service packs.

    I can also confirm that Classic Shell works with 1803 as it had to readjust after a reboot.

    Besides losing audio and getting disk full from the hidden partition becoming an unhidden drive, some of our users were getting desktop.ini opening at startup (notepad) after the 1803 update.

    It turns on “fast startup” and clears the alt+tab registry settings restoring the “new” alt tab functionality.

    (Maybe the users should sue Microsoft and get compensation about the time spent reverting their settings after an “update”.)

    Hi Super Sword. I wasn’t having the same exact issue with Chrome. My chrome kept turning black and or grayed out and wouldn’t load pages. Someone walked me through recreating my chrome profile and it fixed those issues. I don’t know if its coincidence or the update but my chrome started doing all this wacky stuff immediately after the 1803 update. This is the link to the conversation.!msg/chrome/_UGhvu7H9BM/OXV4E5QQAgAJ

    I have an HP z17G3. With this update the only thing I’ve realized thus far is that after locking the screen I have to close and reopen the lid to restore any and all display visibility. Otherwise, I can still blindly log on but the display will only return on an external monitor, without a visible arrow pointer. Pointer function is still present, you just can’t see it. A bit frustrating to lower & raise the lid each time, but certainly not a deal-breaker for me. Cheers

    I thought I had a clean v1803 install until the next day when I booted up and was confronted with the “spinning circles syndrome” which prevented me from even reaching the desktop”. The only solution was to back off to v1709 :-(

  32. SuperSwordGaming said on June 4, 2018 at 4:59 am

    Not sure what’s going on, my chrome just won’t load pages anymore and this didn’t happen until I installed the update and performed a defrag and then used ccleaner. No problems before this. I’m on the device now and some websites are fine. Others aren’t. Such as: ebay’s login page, pizza hut website, google pages (including ones about errors but not including search results), among dozens of other random websites. What gives?

    @Joe Shin …. turn off “Fast Startup” in Power Options, then 1803 will power down. After powering-up again, you may be able to turn “Fast Startup” back on again.

    1. Mike said on June 16, 2018 at 9:54 pm

      Another way to do a full shutdown is to hold the Shift key while choosing “Shut Down” – hold it until the screen goes black.

    My Dell E6410 will not turn off the power after Windows shutdown. Revert back to 1709 and update to 1803 second time, the same no power down results. No particular issue of running 1803 on three desktops.

    Found a temp solution for a restart issue I encounter on my HP Spectre after installing the last Windows version 1803. When I restart, I get an error saying no device is found.

    I have a wireless mouse, and I discovered by unplugging the little USB receiver, my computer restarts with no problem. It’s dumb, but now I unplug that, restart, and then just plug it back in.

    Hope this helps some people.

    We have couple of other minor things that I am still troubleshooting. We have one station that if the monitor is at rest long enough to lock, the main monitor changes resolution to 600 x 800 and the resolution greys out so it cant be changed. The 2nd monitor is fine. They pretty much have to either unplug/re-plug the monitor in or reboot to clear it. Unplugging the monitor and re-plugging takes a lot less time than a reboot. This same persons home desktop is experiencing the update/reboot loop.
    My monitor started doing this thing where the monitor will flash black just for a few seconds, seemingly randomly.

    So far today I’ve found two major issues with 1803, which installed itself last night.
    1. System no longer finds my wifi chipset after restart. I’ve had to manually reinstall the vintage driver (the only one that works) twice so far today. Totally unacceptable.
    2. My faithful Office 2010 picture editor does not save changes when I try to compress a picture for website use. This is disastrous for my webmastering.
    These two alone are enough to make me roll back the update. This is crap.

    Wow there seems to be a lot of people having issues. I have upgraded 4 of my PCs and a Laptop on insider that updated a month before release. I rarely use Chrome or Edge. Most are ASUS MBs from first gen i7 to seventh gen i7. I have (so far) not had any issues. No BSOD. No re-installing apps etc. Maybe I am one of the lucky ones I don’t know.

  46. Pierre said on May 24, 2018 at 1:11 am

    Here are my problems, once the update installed :

    After loging in, the screen stays black for 5 or 10 minutes before loading the desktop.

    The Start Menu does not open and I can’t type in its research bar.

    Right click on programs in the taskbar does not display the context menu.

    My parents got in troubles as the Windows asked them the to solved a problem – pending update – and my parents trusted the Microsoft advice which ended (yesterday, 22nd May ´18) in firstly several hours not usable computer as installing updates and in the end totally unusefull computer as after blue screens only running wheel on black screen.
    That means either my parents should pay to some IT person to care about this, which will cost them money and they will not have their compouter available for days or I will have to go there and solve this.
    Thank you Microsoft!

    After the 1803 upgrade, PCs here are experiencing two problems so far.

    1. MMC will close itself after adding a snap-on. I confirmed this by trying to add Active Directory Users and Computers and Group Policy Management.

    2. Tried to change the default app to Adobe Acrobat Reader for PDFs with Set Defaults By App. It thinks for a few seconds then closes.

    Both of these functions worked fine before the upgrade but are still broken as I write this.

    A minor glitch after the upgrade is that it uninstalled RSAT. I had to download the new version and install. There was no warning and no indication that it was gone until I went to look for a tool. BAD FORM MICROSOFT!

    OK.. so.. back 3 months before I have changed MB, CPU and DDR so MS told I have to buy new licence after few upgrades… I did it from retailer and upgraded to Windows 10 Pro. Yesterday, after upgrade f..g 1803 I lost few games already installed (even just hours before update), the windows.old folder appeared, the few games was moved from other partitions to C:/Games folder. MSI software appeared again, even after uninstall (I had MSI MB before hardware changes). And the worst: I lost my activation, system is asking to buy new key and says I have only Home version… I did try tu roll back to older version, it was working on it but after reboot systems still have the same shitty upgrade and I cannot back to the past… Thank you retarded MS… God knows what else I lost…

    Lesson all should learn about WIndows 10 Upgrades.
    NEVER EVER EVER…Upgrade when it is first released.
    If you have Pro or Enterprise go to Updates/Advanced and change
    to Semi-Annual and set deferred days to 365…

    If you are on Home Edition…Set to metered. This will pause
    updates until you say to go ahead and install them. It will
    not block the upgrade but you will see it pending. At that point
    use the Microsoft Show/Hide Utility to Hide the upgrade…
    Search for wushowhide.diagcab and run that…Wait for it
    to find the Windows 10 upgrade you want to block
    (It won’t find it until it’s in your pending updates).
    Once it finds it and hides it refresh you updates again and
    you will see it’s no longer in your pending updates.

    Every Windows 10 upgrade is fraught with large amounts
    of problems. The insider program that they now use
    for their quality control is highly flawed. Done mostly by
    geeks on the very latest Hardware…Some not even really
    running it in a normal environment but rather running in
    in a virtual environment. The releases are not anywhere
    near ready for the general public and there’s ususally
    little to nothing that the general public would really benefit from.
    Your just guinea-pigs for MS to sort out problems before
    releasing to the Enterprise who I can assure you are all
    on deferral or Long Term Support Brance (Meaning they pay
    to NOT upgrade)…They want to do actual work…Not have
    broken machines everywhere.

    After update to 1803 PC is crashing at login or even during bootup. Safe mode seemed to work. Gave up trying to fix after many hours.

    Did a complete reinstall and not installing anything else than windows. PC still crashes at login and starting in safe mode seems to work….

    Wonder how many hours people have wasted trying to get things working after this update is applied

    We updated our PCs two days ago, and from that moment, as soon as we launch bash (linux subsystem), we\re getting a blue screen. We tried to reinstall, but unfortunately it’s the same. Regardless of the user rights (power user or admin), the result is the same. :-(

    And it didn’t happen only in one PC, it happened in two PCs, with different way on installing linux subsystem.

    The error we are receiving is “SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED” and what failed is FLTMGR.SYS.

    We have no clue on what might be going wrong…

    1. Stratos Nikolaidis said on May 23, 2018 at 12:37 pm

      The crazy part of the story is that the problem is because of BitDefender! BitDefender announced a super-urgent-hot-fix release for this Thursday, to solve it.

      We’re waiting to see what will happen.

    2. Simon Black said on May 23, 2018 at 12:16 pm

      Same as above. Installed (or forced to install update) and Linux subsystem no longer works. As soon as you open bash you get the aforementioned Blue screen of death

    1803 installed while I was working even though I marked to install when pc was inactive (1 AM or later)

    1) blue tooth audio speakers no control of volume on scroll, maxed out. Beep constantly when adjusting the volume. Work around failed to repair

    2) Logitech web cam(s) video not working, not recognized in device manager. Mic on Logic tech cams working though.

    3) McAfee security, deactivated, couldn’t open windows defender .

    After these problems I was done

    Once again a miserable not wanted update to windows 10 I rolled back to 1709. Enough is enough I am tired of being a pc mechanic trying to work around to get my paid software/hardware operate. I’m going to get a mac book pro, it will be cheaper in the long run both mentally and to my wallet. Microsoft is releasing junk that should never be out of beta and using its customers as the test guinea pigs.

    I lost my start menu after updating to 1803 last night. I tried most of the fixes I found online. I can get to it by creating another user account, but most of my programs are not available from there.
    Do you think MS will make another update that could fix this issue? I would rather hold out for that than reinstall everything.

    Hi, I had number of issues after updating 1803 windows version, they are as follows:

    intel uhd graphics 620 driver no supported as a result my pc was running on the external GPU and sometime had a black screen issue at the start up,

    a partition of around 500MB was automatically created which was around 95% filled,

    No sleep function available ,

    Unable to change the brightness of the screen,

    The only solution which worked out for me is restoring back the older version

    My Laptop Model: Acer E5-576G

    1. S0S said on June 3, 2018 at 11:05 pm

      Similar issues on an ASUS VivoBook Pro N580VD
      The No Sleep function is lost apparently because for the Intel HD Graphics 630 : “Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)”
      Unable to change screen brightness
      Customs folders & Shortcuts in the Start Menu had to be remade as they were only in the C:\Windows.old folder
      Some privacy settings were turned back to default, and some new ones had to be set.
      WiFi Hotspot 2.0 Networks which was off – came back on.
      Mobile hotspot – “Turn on Remotely” was off – came back on

    I have a issue with the start menu (I’m not using any Start10-like programs). There are basically two main problems with this:
    1) Shutdown, settings and account buttons are not working, that is they cannot be clicked, they look like they’re not enabled
    2) The “Recently added” entries are not being hovered accordingly to my mouse position.

  64. Jeff said on May 17, 2018 at 9:11 am

    Both of my display adapters failed after the update. I have the Intel HD 630 on-board and the GTX 1050 dedicated graphics cards in my laptop. They both had yellow warning triangles on them and the computer reverted to basic windows display adapter and I could not use either of my adapters.

    This caused the loss of screen brightness control completely, took away night light mode and also created a warning that some things would appear blurry.

    I tried uninstalling both display adapters and reinstalling and it did not work. I had to revert back to the version of windows prior to the update and everything started working again.

    Win10 64 bit: After my 1803 install and start up on 5/16/18, my desktop and all view settings were reset to a “new out of the box” computer. i.e. No settings, config or preferences from before. The desktop had only a handful of the MS default items, and all my program association preferences were replaced with MS defaults (e.g. Edge).

    I use a 3rd party desktop manager (Stardock/Fences) and its configuration and backup settings were completely wiped clean too.

    I tried to use the Restore Point setting to go back to a pre-install state, but it failed due to a “missing file.”

    One of my tech buddies suggested that v1803 may have created a new profile for me with the program load and startup in that profile, hence none of the settings had been migrated or accessed.

    I ran out of patience trying to troubleshoot and successfully restored Win10 to my previous v1709 and all of those above issues were resolved. I then changed the gpedit.msc settings to disable auto install.

    However, my backup computer (also Win10 64 bit) had also downloaded and installed the new v1803, and it booted up with no apparent problems. Two others yet to go, we’ll see . . .

    The main issue I experienced was from the removal of home group and its sharing function..we now have windows 7 machines that were sharing printers on a windows 10 machine but they can no longer connect. Initially all computers lost this connection but I was able to get the windows 10 machines to connect to the shared printer.

    Having said this, its completely wrong that this stuff is being forced on people when it is obviously still full of problems.

    Found an additional problem when attempting to run database applications from a network share. Apparently, if you launch an application from an SMB share, something (OS, Defender, ??) prohibits the application from being able to open up a network port. This issue does NOT appear if you launch the same application from an SMB2 share.

    The problem is NOT specific to databases or even TCP. I wrote a simple application that sends out a UDP packet. When running locally on the Windows 10 1803 machine, it sends out the UDP packet as expected. When loading the EXE from an SMB2 share on a Windows Server 2012 machine, it also sends out the UDP packet. However, when running it from an SMB share on Windows Server 2003, it never sends out the packet!

    Apparently, this update is blocking direct network access for ANY application launched from an SMB share. Sounds like an ingenious way to force people to upgrade from Server 2003, if you ask me!

    After the update, my microphone simply does not work. I have tried all the “fixes” that i found in over 10 hours of searching and scouring the web. The privacy thing is as it should be, the volumes levels are all maxed, all other unnecessary and enhancement settings are off, used multiple headsets and microhpones through all inputs, none of them work. Only time i can get anything to happen is when you go to listen in the microphone properties and click to listen to this device, i can hear it in my headset, but it DOES NOT work ANYWHERE else, I am so sick of these shitty ass, forced updates that I do not want to do which cripple a part of my system every goddamn time. If anyone knows of an actual fix and not one of the “common” fixes that might help this problem, please let me know.

    Although 1803 has downloaded on my machine, I haven’t yet “installed” it, and it’s obviously part installed or made changes as I have the “cannot shut down” issue re-occurring. It’s bloody annoying as AF and I’m ticked at Microsoft for sneak installing the upgrade without me having any say in it. Having Microsoft just release a patch once a month isn’t good enough ot fix the issues this upgrade will break.

    for what I experienced and found so far :
    – even though my fingerprint is still saved , I’m now asked to enter my password, which makes this feature completely useless.
    – fonts are way too small … I can (as said in the info page of microsoft) push to 125% or more the display, but the impact is shitty and not visible on all apps …
    It’s insane how they can push such annoying things ..
    I wanted to do the ” go back to the previous version” thingy offered in the parameters, but as far as they don’t explicitly say which one and therefore how backwards we are going to go with this revert, I’m cautious about it.
    It means I’ll have to save a lot of things on my computer before and all ..
    I don’t have time to do all that …

      you’ll have to revert back to the old version every other day, it won’t let you choose to not do the update, it automatically does it and I have not found a place in the settings where I can turn this off and decide what updates I wish to use and discard because of their outright shittiness.

    Nowhere to download Windows Media Player 12. Annoying after update to Windows Version 1803, to get message that WMP is not installed properly and must be reinstalled – it was fine before. Clicking on the “Yes” to reinstall link in that message gives NOWHERE to get it without reinstalling a clean copy of Windows 10! Clicking “No” gets rid of the message for a few seconds and then it keeps coming back. Uninstalling/reinstalling WMP does not help. Even more annoyingly, there is a standalone fix via the Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N (April 2018) which says it DOES, but it WON’T install to my full edition of Windows 10! I don’t want Groove Music which is useless, and I HAVE A HUGE LIBRARY of songs I now can’t access!

    I’m using a Surface Pro 2017 model and after the 1803 update the touch keyboard has become more responsive with better accuracy, but there is now an intermittent (and annoying) bug with swipe/word-flow randomly stopping. Also, when text has been entered in a text box, like in Twitter or on a Bing/Google search page, and you then want to edit it, touch no longer allows words to be selected or the caret to be moved from the beginning.

    I usually use the small touch keyboard so when this bug happens I have to change to the larger keyboard and use the cursor keys to move the caret to where I want to edit/delete text.

    Another bug is in Edge: use Add Notes and then clip the area you want to keep. Now on trying to share this clip via e-mail, the attachment is not recognised by Windows and will not open even though it’s shown as a .JPG.

    Windows 10 Pro, Version 1803, Build 17134.1

    Google Chrome hangs system intermittently. Happens when opening or opening a new tab will HANG the system temporarily. Can’t click on anything, can’t ALT+TAB to anything, can’t close Chrome. It feels like the OS is running but Video might not be responding, some of the mouse and keyboard commands go through.

    I have to press WIN+L to Lock or CTRL+ALT+DEL and hit Enter to lock the system, then wait for the screen to time out and then log-back in, and everything is back to fine for a while.

    Have updated BIOS and Video Drivers, have uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome (will try Chrome Enterprise next).

    running Administrative Tools on 1709 after update to 1803 everything is gone.Microsoft has been criticizing Apple over software but is getting worse than ever windows 10 remind me of those older really bad OS Millenium-Vista.They fix 1 issue and create 10 new issues.really crappy os.

    Most of those posting here are having better luck than I am. My Sony F-Series laptop has installed some updates, and now is stuck in the startup process and unusable. I have a desktop, but no icons. I have a start menu, but it won’t pop up. I have nothing in the system tray. I cannot start task manager. None of my icons appear in the task bar. None of my icons appear on the desktop. So, all I can actually do is log on and log out or restart the computer, none of which changes anything.Nice. Thanks MS.

    Upon installation of the April Update and the Cumulative updates; I still face an issue where after resuming my computer from Sleep (Whether by using Start Menu or simply shutting the lid of my screen); the display becomes completely unresponsive with glitching across the screen unlike anything.

    The only solution I came up with that is have the display turn off by itself after inactivity (This option is in battery options) and continue on. Apart from that, no other issues faced.

    after 1803 upgrade, my touchPad freezes and won’t work every once in a while. The only way to get it work again is to go into the Device Manager then disabling it and enabling it again. I got an Asus laptop.

  109. Kenneth Frankel said on May 9, 2018 at 2:15 am

    Yes, a mess. I tried to get (buy) a new copy of Win 10, but it started to get updates and I am back to the mess. My printer got a copy1 so that worked. I deleted the original and renamed the copy.
    OK – problem seems to be with Focus assist and going to Settings (blue screen with a gear) If I avoid that, I can go on. If I try those 2 things, mouse icon and everything dies. I was trying to go to recovery and get a previous version, only to seize up. OS 1803 (17134.1)
    Live Mail has words that are at right angle and mirror image. I saved a screen shot.

      I have the right-angle thing, too. Still hunting for a fix. Luckily, this is a workshop computer. My “real” computer is an iMac in the house.

      Also, I’ve noticed most things are taking three times as long to happen with 1803. Auto-install last evening without option to delay or decline.

    The left button on the Synaptics PS/2 misbehaves – sometimes it works like it should, sometimes just “focus” cursor on a button/link but does not make the click, sometimes it just does nothing (on MSI GL62-6QD). But I feel lucky after reading through all the other issues reported here.

  112. tannya said on May 8, 2018 at 6:57 pm

    we have a 32 bit windows app with a main menu and since the update the main menu does not display its context. for example, i click on my app file menu, it looks pressed but the context menu is invisible. if i browse over the area where the menu should be and click then a windows form does pop-up. so the menus are there but invisible. we have two users that just updated to 1803 with the same issue. we have tried minimizing, maximizing the window and nothing.

    My Lenovo Laptop (i5-2410M) didn’t work at all after the update, I am now forced to make a clean install from a bootable USB and reinstall all my applications. I hope that works… and I’m also afraid to have my other machines perform the updates, since they may encounter the same problems or even worse, and I have no interest in risking it (at least not now where I have work to do and can’t afford spending 1 whole day to fix each of my computers)

  115. Hector. said on May 8, 2018 at 3:14 am

    Tiles are gone. Start menu looks basic ( Win 7 style ) Right click properties doesn’t work.
    Pin To Start function doesn’t work either. Tiles work in Safe Mode. Reinstalled NVIDIA drivers to previous versions and latest but it didn’t fix the problem.

    I had to roll back to 1709

  116. Paul Robert said on May 8, 2018 at 12:54 am

    I went through all of these issues. Especially to issue with Edge. Did the Powershell reset line and no help. Had the slow reaction for start menu launch and pretty much everything else you mentioned. Finally after teetering on the edge of format and install or change user I broke down and ran what usually does not work. Did sfc /scannow and then Dism restoreHealth ( lookup dism commands in search) and things got better. Finally turned off the new Windows Defender “Exploit Protection” and it stopped some really scary notifications. One issue left which is semi fixed is Account Picture wont change. Had to go into “User Account Pictures” and change all the gray skeletons to my preffered photo. The photo shows up but still can’t change picture. Folks make change user profile sound like a piece of cake but the aftershock is incredible. Rather format and restore. Dism fixed most everything else. A lot of corruption.

    This was a nightmare for me. I got a new laptop: Acer Nitro 5 with Win 10 Home. I had an issue switching the key/license to a bought Pro key. Once I got around that, it updated the April 1803. Once it was finished, nothing I could do would prevent a crash. The crashes were mostly “Critical Process Died” which I couldn’t narrow down. I decided to manually update everything which was the problem, I *think*. I did another clean install and so far things are okay. No “bangs” in Device Manager. I put my ESO back on my secondary Samsung EVO 860 SSD and after re-downloading the redistribs, the game works very smooth. The only errors now are httpevent 15301 and Dcom Distributed, which I can fix with the setacl.exe and it’s usually Component Services / Shell Host and Runtime Broker. Fix permissions and voila. This has been a nightmare though. Thanks MS.

  118. Marlon said on May 7, 2018 at 9:07 pm

    AMD screen drivers are gone — this is madness. MS should release W10 versions once per year, named 10.18, 10.19, 10.20… and so on, because it’s clear that 6 month development cycle is unuseful, erratic and brutalizing. They are just out of control….

    “Shutdown does not work properly, neither when executed from the Start Menu nor from the command line. Restart works and should be used instead for the time being.”

    I am experiencing both Shut Down & Restarting delays ranging from 10-15 minutes before completing as expected. I have already toggled ‘Fast Startup’ on/off with the same results.

    Has anyone else experienced this and/or have a workaround?

    How many employees are there at Microsoft? Why do they encourage the use of “rings,” or public testing? They should have enough manpower to internally test their own product using their limitless resources. I don’t usually enter into this kind of discussion, but geeez, how can Microsoft allow this kind of slipshod product development? I understand that user feedback is an important component of the customer experience, but only after a final, relatively smooth and minimal error release of a new update. Something is terribly wrong with what’s going on here. I thought better of them in the past. However, I am cautiously hopeful that they will fix these problems post haste.

  123. William Greenman said on May 7, 2018 at 3:02 am

    Sounds to me like MS should fire the head of software development for releasing such a disgraceful update known as 1803. I have spent over nine thousand dollars building a new computer with absolute state-of-the-art components, and am alarmed that Windows 10 v1803 is so defective. I have not yet installed an OS, and am glad that I did not install v1803. 1709 will be what I use for now. MS has a lot more money than any of us, so where is the money for proper software engineering going? Millions of users are affected by this sort of thing, with many millions of man-hours lost trying to figure out Microsoft’s mistakes. Also, the Microsoft stores are filled with dummies that don’t even know about the April 2018 update! While they are at it, they should also fire the head of retail marketing. This disregard for carefully checking a new software platform is not being taken seriously by MS. As an electrical engineer, I can tell you that this kind of methodology can only lead to defection of otherwise loyal customers. Don’t forget Microsoft, even a company like yours can fall hard if you lose focus on what matters most…a great customer experience.

    1. TheKat said on May 15, 2018 at 1:01 am

      The big problem is the update “sneak installing” on your machine. I wanted to wait and see what issues it threw up, but it’s downloaded on my machine, and even though I haven’t installed it, I’m having issues such as the shutdown function not working.

      I understand there are computer idiots out there who need this done automatically for them, but am disgusted Microsoft thinks every single user is a drooling moron and that we all don’t know what’s good for us.

    can’t add machines to single domain name.
    That’s a bug or a feature?
    I could do it on build 1709 ..
    I can’t use domain netbios name to join? but dns name works..
    did this with several machines and tested with new installations.
    I will probably wait for the next build, can’t use this new one.

    1. Robajz said on May 7, 2018 at 1:04 pm

      Same problem by me … can’t connect to single-label domain name.
      Tried on 1709 and there was any problem … does MS know about it?

      1. Max said on June 14, 2018 at 1:46 pm

        If your problem is the single-label domain but the DNS on this domain is configured correctly, you can use a registry setting: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Paramaters\AllowSingleLabelDnsDomain (reg_dword) = 1

      2. Robajz said on June 14, 2018 at 3:30 pm

    The images / graphics on my Start Menu are always blank when Windows starts. The square tiles are always there, but their corresponding images are blank at the beginning. They can be seen appearing one by one once I open the Start Menu. Sometimes, not all icons load, and I’m just left with a blank tile.

  129. Pieter said on May 6, 2018 at 12:08 pm

    Reading all this about windows 1- tells me 1 thing:

    Microsoft does NOT respect your limited TIME !

    It does not care if the screw up and the peeps will takes hours of their time to fix it all again.

    What if my time is very important to me and cannot loose it on fixing problems that were NOT there in Windows 7 ?

    Why cannot I not buy the LTSB or what ever it is called version ?

    I do NOT want apps, metro I want an OS that works so I can put my time in things that make me money and let my pc do what I need it to do.

    Damn.. feel sorry for everyone.

    Make sure you hold it down during the entire restarting process. The blue Advanced Options window should pop-up.

    My Dell Inspiron Model 3264 AIO with windows 10 Home is rendered useless after this manual update.

    I can Sign-in, but then it goes to my Desktop for about 8 seconds — and flips to a White Screen with Cortana information in the top left corner of the window. A voice pukes useless info when I hover the mouse pointer over the subject titles. There’s also a scrolling box with more useless Cortana info.

    Spent 6 hours trying to remedy, including 3 sessions with the Live Chat folks (in India). the first 2 “ended” our session abruptly. The third, a woman, was helpful but nothing could be fixed. She gave me a phone number (for the Netherlands help source) which I will try today.

    I will never have to do a Microsoft Windows manual update again.
    I will fix this new machine, give it to a college student… and going straight to Mac — never to use a Microsoft / Windows product again.

    Got too annoyed at the bugs. I did a clean install with 1803. Cleaned out many of the bugs. Works fine for me now. Hardly will recommend that to anyone who got their work 24/7. It took me over 3 hours to restore all my apps and work setup.

    Today my Win10 Pro system replaced my .DOC association to Winword2000 with the new Office version requiring registration (read “send Microsoft some money”). The old Winword2000 still works if I execute it, but I cannot restore the association. I’ve tried through CONTROL PANEL>DEFAULT PROGRAMS; right click on a .DOC file and try to reset the association; using CMD to run WINWORD.EXE /r (the 2000 version); and various direct editing by deleting the association in the REGEDIT files. Microsoft has gone to some lengths to lock out associating the old Winword2000 as a default program for the .DOC extension.

    I have tried all of the options without success.
    Opening windows using my login and password took an age, then showed the login screen again. Tried the other login, my wife’s, and Windows 10 started, but the black screen shows only the trash can… no installed app. The task bar is not complete… wireless card is not working and the start button does not work.

    Chrome freezes while watching HD Youtube videos and also that LibreOffice menus have a weird delay, not observed in 1709. I have decided to revert my system to 1709 and blocking updates with some third party utility. I have had enough. You, Microsoft I’m really so disappointed! :(

    Got updated to 1803 a few nights ago. Ended up with my Recovery partition suddenly showing as nearly full which causes Windows to show constant warning messages to me. Deleting the Recovery partition seems like a bad idea to me, so I will be doing yet another full format and reinstall of Windows thanks again to MS screwing the pooch with an update. Do you know how ,any times I had to reformat and reinstall XP due to a MS update issue? Never…..not once.

    First install attempt failed, second went through fine however on a shutdown/boot, HDMI monitor did not display and my two DVI monitors started flickering. Restarted and got it to run for about 30 seconds but could not adjust anything in sound properties, switch sound cards, input devices, etc, . Then monitors flickered again and went black. Broke my eyefinity setup and when I rebooted each screen was 5760×1080, scaled of course so everything on each monitors (mirrored display at this point) was scaled, looking squished. Was able to PIN in but again monitors flickered and went black, all subsequent attempts no HDMI display. Was able to roll back to previous and everything is restored. Just attempted again without eyefinity enabled before rebooting and same issue as before except no squished display on login. No HDMI, DVI mons flicker to black. Just built this machine a couple weeks ago and has a fresh install of 1709 not much installed but some steam games, office 365 and hardware drivers. Not going to attempt again for a while.

    I have no problem with Start10. Had to reinstall some programs. Lots of event errors with DCom and logs being to full. Broken icon in the Control Panel. Absolutely hate the fact that I can’t remove components from the network adapters within the network connections area. Such as QOS Packet Scheduler. If I have to reinstall my network drivers I have to go through the unchecking of the components and entire configuration over again. Insane. Need to work on the permission levels for the RuntimeBroker. That is about the only error message I have left to deal with. Today.
    I did notice my memory usage is lower. Which is great.

    After the upgrade my Start menu looks like Win 7 menu. Tiles are gone. Pin to Start doesn’t work. Right click Properties on Menu doesn’t do anything.
    Any ideas ?

    My TS3 is not working anymore after this update. It cannot recognize my sound card / devices and mic. Tried some fixes on the internet for this 1803 issue, but none of them worked.

    Upgraded my 4-year old HP desktop computer tonight and I must say I have not seen any serious bugs so far. I experienced one BSOD during upgrade which I suspect was due to custom Temp-folder location or connected peripherials. But after disconnecting all peripehrials and setting default Temp folder location, upgrade process was fast. Have not experienced the mouse movement issue.

  161. Michael said on May 3, 2018 at 11:01 pm

    Local (home) network sharing completely broken after 1803, and I wasn’t using HomeGroup before either. My Home PCs cannot see one another’s shared folders anymore and no amount of settings changes / tweaks / un-sharing / re-sharing makes any difference.

    1. Steve Sybesma said on May 6, 2018 at 2:50 am

      I also have that issue…share tab is missing on all drive and folder properties.

        I actually tried almost every fix I could find on the internet. In the end, for all wireless devices I had to ‘forget’ all my previous connections to the router and re-connect (some of these took several attempts), and for the wired devices I finally got them to see one another’s files by re-enabling SMB 1 Windows features – which alone wasn’t enough – and then updating all the ethernet drivers ‘manually’ by jumping into the device manager.

        After a few reboots they are finally networking (almost) normally again; I still get a failure to read a folder or file sometimes that is inexplicable but I’d say 85-90% of the time the connections work now.

    asrock GS41-GS rev 2.0 custom built…windows 10 home 64. Everything appeared to be fine. I did have the headphone default output problem and had to change back to speakers. But after doing a system backup, I lost windows apps (Package not registered). No start button (right or left click), no edge, windows explorer opened and a navigated to IE. That worked. Navigated to cmd prompt and ran sfc and dsim, Both ran to completion with no errors.. go figure.. cntl alt del… signed out… restarted from sign on, lwr right corner prompt. Boot took 3 -4 minutes. But to my surprise everything worked. Went to event viewer.. saw one major error. Session “Circular Kernel Context Logger” stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188… followed advice on MS to raise the log size to 40. no more error no more problems far.

    For anyone having the problem with the intel GPU driver in error, solution is here…..
    Intel released a new GPU driver a few days before the Windows release. Once installed, all works.
    Problem is if you run the exe is sometimes won’t install with message saying the OEM manufacturer needs to provide.
    You can get around this by unzipping the driver and FORCE the driver install (search google for how)

    Ive tested this on 5 different HP’s and works well.
    Issue seems only to present on notebooks with dual graphic cards.

  169. mat9v said on May 3, 2018 at 3:40 pm

    On Ryzen setup with RAID drivers, 1803 is unable to update system – reports error at first boot stage. All that despite current system having working drivers and even slipstreaming them into 1803 installation files.
    Clean install of 1803 does not see RAID drives unless I disable UEFI, despite 1709 install having no problems with it (with drivers supplied on usb during install or slipstreamed into installation – makes no difference) with the same drivers – probably the reason update attempts were unsuccessful because they were attempted on system configured to use UEFI.
    Tried on 2 different machines with 17134.1 , 17134.5 and full official versions. 17133 did not have that problem.
    Typical problems with this release (clean install)
    – Chrome causing stutters and blue screens – Chromium works correctly, so is Firefox (nightly builds)
    – microphone not working unless Windows apps are allowed to use it (same with camera)
    – all methods to prevent reinstalling crapware games fail
    – sound cards (only external DACs) disappear from Sounds applet when playing audio using ASIO, reappear after exiting app that started ASIO stream

    Wow, that’s a long list of Windows Update woes! The only problem I had with the update on my 2 months old acer laptop that I use for Web development was that it took around 6 hours to complete but without any issues. I noticed that a few programs were reinstalled. The update improved windows performance, which was laggy before and it even fixed IE 11 that was extremely slow and unusable before the update. All software that I use regularly are working fine. I simply followed tips available online on how to prepare for the update such as updating all drivers, performing memory, chkdsk and system file checker tests, uninstalling 3rd party antivirus softwares, disconnecting all USB and other peripherals, restart system before checking for update. These seem to have worked for me. As for people with issues after the update, you guys can check out the below link for solutions/fixes.

    Update to 1803 went without problems. Got an issue with bluetooth…

    I have an Logitech Bluetooth mouse connected (MX Anywhere 2). With a certain VMWare Horizon connection, the bluetooth connection is killed. Annoying, but I could always regain connection after a restart of Windows (up to 1709).
    Now after updating to 1803, a restart of Windows no longer regains bluetooth connection. Any device found in Settings > Bluetooth and other devices > Add a device > Bluetooth now is displayed as “Unknown device”.

    Have not found anything to fix it up to now. Microsoft apparently has changed the thoroughness of the restart…

    1. Laurene said on May 31, 2018 at 2:12 pm

      I also have an issue with Bluetooth whereby the driver is installed, however, in device manager, the device status is “This device cannot start (Code 10) STATUS_DEVICE_POWER_FAILURE. I’ve tried uninstalling & reinstalling the driver from the Intel site, have installed KB4103721 and deleted the UpperFiltering & LowerFilering entry from the registry but still nothing.

      Any ideas? I have a Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard that no longer works now :-(

    2. VictorV said on May 3, 2018 at 12:02 pm

      UPDATE, found a fix for my issue:a restart of Windows did NOT fix my bluetooth problem, but a SHUTDOWN did!
      I shutdown Windows and started my (Dell XPS 9550) laptop again via the power button and bluetooth devices start showing their names again in Add Bluetooth device (no more “Unknown devices”). I could connect my Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse again.

    OEM new partition has been created after upgrading to W10 1803, also Asus Splendid Utility stops working when an USB device is plugged. Sometimes very short freezings are noticed, with high disk activity, some privacy settings has been reverted, some WiFi settings (IPv6 and more) were reverted also to their defaults. Twice a year of these wrong issues is so bad for people, so annoying, why not turn back to old updating method of monthly minor updates and service packs every two years? I missed Win7 so much sometimes… :(

      My sister also recommends to disable low-space notifications with registry of Windows:

    2. John said on May 4, 2018 at 2:33 pm

      Workaround for ASUS splendid utility: create an icon at taskbar and set manually the desired color level or eye-protection level at startup. Also set manually each time after an USB device is plugged.

    They did it with the “Network and Internet Settings”, now the did the same with the sound settings you have to guess where to go. After the installation my speakers were reset to Stereo, it was a pain trying to set them back to 5.1.

    If you have the same problem, left click on the speaker icon on the taskbar and select “Sound Settings” then on the right side of the window there’s a label “Related Settings” then click on “Sound Control Panel” you got the old settings (which BTW was only one freaking click away). Then choose your device and then click “Configure”.

    This is ridiculous, the modern settings are a joke.

    Another major bug under Settings | Apps | Default apps.

    The old Control Panel icon for setting default associations for file types does not work anymore with this version.
    Unfortunately it has been removed, leaving us with this bug. And no other means to set all associations at the same time for a particular program.

    1. watson387 said on May 6, 2018 at 3:19 am

    So microcode Spectre still OK checked with Gibson Research tool. Chrome tends to lag or hang at times. Some say Nvidia drivers need to be fixed apparently causing some hardware acceleration issues with browsers. Fix is turn off hardware accel for now or try different drivers. Its a given that these releases are not bullet proof in not having issues. Just too bad many of us don’t have much choice in the matter whether we want to deal with it or not.

    1. Mateo said on May 3, 2018 at 5:13 pm

      Maybe at some time you updated the bios; then you have the microcode permanently. KB4090007 update for 1709 was installed with the Intel microcode to mitigate Spectre. I just installed the 1803 and, after using the InSpectre tool, I see that I am vulnerable again and there is no update available from Microsoft:

      1. Galixte said on May 4, 2018 at 2:37 pm

        Just a question of timing, this patch will be updated in further weeks. ;)

      2. TeddyM said on May 4, 2018 at 6:39 pm

        Same problem (ditto) after upgrading to April 2018 feature update. I was protected according to InSpectre before this upgrade; now, I am back to square one. Why couldn’t they keep the microcode update from KB4090007 embedded in the April 2018 Update?. Beats me!

        Other issue has to do with Edge. When opened half way (not maximized), if I click and hold the title bar to move the window, it won’t budge. “Repairing” Edge in settings > Apps > Apps and features seems to fix the issue temporarily, for after a while or a restart the same problem will resurface>. I haven’t tried “Reset”. And, I don’t have the same issue with other browsers like Chrome or Firefox.

      3. Galixte said on May 4, 2018 at 7:25 pm

        At first time, I thought this hotfix was permanent, but this case reveals that’s not.

        Then, I think during Windows loading this hotfix loads (with a software method) the new microcode above the original (that in the processor hardware only upgradable by BIOS update). So, it’s a conciliatory solution but currently that depends on the compatibility system (1703, 1803, 1809, etc.).

        Because it need to be installed manually, I hope, at short-term, Microsoft will propose this patch by Windows Update to propagate it to a maximum of users. Otherwise, too few users will install this patch.

  188. SadlJu said on May 2, 2018 at 9:14 pm

    Headset isn’t working after the update. Uninstalled and reinstalled realtek drivers (both from the windows catalog and the realtek website). I can get sound when I change my headset to 7.1 and turn off all optional speakers, but then this turns off my ability to use the built in microphone!

    1. Procodmi said on May 3, 2018 at 10:45 am

      same for me: sound drivers realtek and files realtek just deleted by win10 replaced by microsoft drivers.
      For the mic, Check Settings > Privacy Microphone and test if “Let apps use my microphone” resolves the issue.

  195. Diego said on May 2, 2018 at 4:39 pm

    Had the problem with the new disk. Its defined as a OEM partition with 450mb size.
    Diskmanager cannot alter it.

    But using diskpart works.Instead of deleting the partition, I only removed the label. As I dont care about those 450mb and I suspect windows needs that partition. So removing the label seems the safest bet.
    I wanted to leave it as is, but windows starts nagging about “no free space left” on that disk. So its very annoying.

  196. clowd said on May 2, 2018 at 4:31 pm

    1. H. Wijk said on May 3, 2018 at 12:08 am

      The solution for that could be under the Privacy settings for Camera and Microphone.
      Enable the services there and allow acces to cam and mic even if you don’t use Microsoft apps.
      The behavior of this privacy setting differs from earlier version of Windows 10.

    HELP – THe Windows 1803 update has messed up my system. It gets “stuck” after a few minutes —> all basic windows and explorer functions don’t — the Taskbar doesn’t respond, Start menu won’t appear, Alt+Tab doesn’t work, I am stuck INSIDE whatever window I am currently in — even the Minimize, Maximize buttons and resizing and moving of the current window will not respond.

    The only way to break out of this is to put the computer to sleep physically by pressing the power or sleep physical buttons, and then wake up out of sleep. And then again the cycle begins all over again – gets stuck after a few minutes of using.

    1. Bren said on May 15, 2018 at 9:51 pm

      Bob, I too had similar issues with the Fall Creator’s update and following updates afterwards, although escaped a re-run of the issue this time around. I’m guessing that admin commands don’t appear to run correctly either, and various context menus are also broken?

      I managed (after a good deal of searching) to find a post by a user on an MS answers board who fixed it by toggling third party shell extensions off and on again. At least it was the case for that one guy and myself that the updates broke shell extensions attached to non-Microsoft software such as media players, antivirus programs, 7zip etc..

      The thread is here, if you want to take a look. It fixed the issue for me (and it does sound like the same issue to me).

    I’m experiencing a lot of (seemingly) random freezes, my laptop becomes absolutely unresponsive. The only solution I have discovered is to put it to sleep (by pressing the Power button) and then immediately start it again. It will just resume where I stopped and everything would work totally fine… for an unknown amount of time and until another freeze.

    Firefox Version 59.0.3 not working. Had this version working before on Windows 10 v1709 before it went to v1803. Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox but no luck. Just sits there….browser will not open…?

      Re: Firefox Quantum 64bit w/MS v1803.
      Firefox provided an update v59.0.3 to coincide with MS update 1803. It was suggested to have this version installed before the MS update.
      Version 59.0.3 didn’t work after the MS update in my case.
      I was able to download an earlier version of FF (57.0.2) and it worked w/1803.
      Went to the FF ESN channel where it automatically updated to the 59.0.3 version and is working,,, so far! Even Favorites/Bookmarks were saved.

      Isn’t it amazing that these updates are of such poor quality….that there are always these “unknown ramifications” caused by updates….

      …you know, those odd anomalies that cause immense problem, but that are “rare” and peculiar, such as yours.

      Things that worked just fine…..then odd things happen.

      I can’t believe what a mess this all is, and sorry for all who suffer.

    I got the bluescreen and all of my window’s was gone. I had no backup or anything accept for on cd, but it erased all versions of windows from my computer completely, so I couldn’t even restore my previous version. I have windows 8 on cd, so I had to install that again, and that was a hastle, because it wouldn’t install correctly. I set up a call with microsoft help and they couldn’t help me. I finally figured it out myself (mind you I know next to nothing about computers) through trial and error, and a little online help. I am afraid to upgrade now :(

    1. Hola said on May 16, 2018 at 11:54 pm

      Had the same experience, update totally screwed my system (ASUS desktop PC). Went into a boot loop, no recovery, reinstall, etc. works so far. I’m really desparate and wonder how Microsoft can get along with such shitty OS. Somebody should make them accountable for this behaviour.

    if you’re happy the way your machine runs, stop playing the Microsoft game, do not upgrade and fall for any of this BS, is it not worth the stress…

    1. Sophie said on May 2, 2018 at 8:58 am

      I just don’t know why people update?!??!!! I could not bear the stress. I have spent far far too long getting everything as I want it, to have MS trample over everything.

      I sincerely believe that people hopefully should come to the realisation that the “risk” of malware/badware….call it what you will, is FAR LOWER than the risk of damage caused by updates.

      If people just cloned their SDD/HDD, stopped updates, even if something malware related happened, they can always then just roll back.

      I just don’t get why people put up with all this.

      1. Kevin L said on May 6, 2018 at 11:29 am

        Problem is two-fold:
        1. Microsoft has brainwashed everyone into thinking they own the internet and all related products.
        2. One must eventually update the annual major release as MS will make former versions obsolete in short order.

  212. Jan said on May 1, 2018 at 10:39 pm

    In my case my Dell Latitude E6330 won’t work at all after the “upgrade”. My desktop has one Icon on it, Recycle bin! and that’s where this “update” belong. I have an error message saying “C:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\desktop” is unavailable. Hav rebooted one time, same message appear again after login. Now where did my profile go?

    Can’t do anything but hit the 3 finger salute (ctrl+alt+del) to restart/shut down.
    I really don’t like this, now i have to start search for solutions or reinstall EVERYTHING from scratch.

        my only solution i found on 1 of 2 thus far was using the dell os recovery tool. wiped and reimaged, factory defaults. what a mess. you guys using any provisioning packages that were built and installed for version 1709. We are.

    5. Jeremy McAtee said on May 2, 2018 at 5:20 pm

      I have 2 Dell 7285 that are behaving the exact same way you are explaining, i am running the Dell OS REcovery Tool on one of them.

    6. Jeremy McAtee said on May 2, 2018 at 4:59 pm

      Just curious, did you have any sort of provisioning profile loaded on the previous version, i assume you were on 1709?

  213. Oscar said on May 1, 2018 at 10:39 pm

    As soon as the Windows update option was confirmed, I tried that route, but it the program failed 2 times, I had problems shutting down and rebooting that computer via normal ways (start menu and physical button), so i decided to backup important data and download the ISO, then do a clean install, this time no problems, then boot the PC via USB using UEFI, the files were copied but cannot update the boot record from some reason, 2 times failed, the third one, tried normal boot, no UEFI and that finally worked. Later with Windows 10 running, the only problem I encountered was that my Bluetooth headphones connect fine but immediately disconnects for some reason, they were fully charged, rebooted several times, remove the device and re paired again, finally after many attempts they connect and changed to default audio output, weird. Windows 10 seems working fine now. Since I had this problems with UEFI, I decided to wait for a while before updating other computers.

    1. Klaus said on May 28, 2018 at 8:45 am

      I’m also having the same problem with the Bluetooth headphones disconnecting immediately. Since installing the update, I’ve had to remove my Bluetooth headphones via the Bluetooth Settings, and then perform the Pairing steps again.

      I have confirmed that this behaviour happens on a different PC with a different Bluetooth headset as well.

      Like Ash asked, did you solve the Bluetooth problem?

    2. Ash said on May 28, 2018 at 3:26 am

      Hey Oscar,

      Did you completely solve this issue as I have the same problem? The issue doesn’t go away for me. Keep disconnecting my Bluetooth headphone all the time. Need to retry several times before it is finally connected.

    After this update I had the following issues:
    – lost my network printer and scanner, had to reinstall;
    – Kaspersky internet security 2018 corrupt, had to reinstall;
    – audio/microphone of Logitech webcam not working, video is working, still not able to get voice/speech working, microphone setup crashes although device manager says everything is installed ok and working;
    – classic shell is working ok after reinstall.
    Rolled back to previous version and waiting for a fix on the microphone issue.

    1. bob a job said on May 5, 2018 at 12:06 pm

      I have the exact same issue I have a VOID USB & Soundblaster – when you “listen” to the microphone all is well but any voice recognition options just hang when selecting them from the speech recognition page – non of the voice recognition listens to my mics anymore (despite all fine and all drivers up to date). I also use Voicebot for voice activation tkey triggers and it relies on this and hears nothing and now hangs every so often – I will try allowing apps to access audio as mentioned and see.

    2. Jens Hoerburger said on May 4, 2018 at 8:48 pm

      Hah! somebody below wrote the solution: It’s in the privacy settings. With the new update the settings for camera and mic got kind of stronger and for example skype cannot access cam and mic if you prevent the general access to cam and mic.

      Mine is working again, after allowing other programs to access cam and mic. Strange thing is cam and mic settings were not part of the new privacy settings of the 1803 update. I’m pretty sure that I had these settings all the time before. I guess it did not work in the past :)

    3. gef950 said on May 3, 2018 at 3:16 am

      Try to change sound setting from tray bar – right click the sound icon. My output device somehow was changed to headphone by win 1803. I had to revert it back to speakers.

    I’ve rolled back as my laptop has frozen out of nowhere several times.

    Display driver (Intel 620) also had to get uninstalled and ‘automatically updated’ to an early version as I had a code error 43.

    1. Olli said on May 2, 2018 at 8:59 am

      Did you get the 620 working by reinstalling driver?

      I tried to update the driver to the latest -> Didn’t help.

      I tried to uninstall the driver + let Windows install a new one -> didn’t help.

      At the moment I’m stuck with laptop’s internal display, which is quite problematic…

      I have HP 820G4, but that is probably not an issue.

  219. J said on May 1, 2018 at 6:29 pm

    1803 seems to have broken VLANs with my Intel I217-LM network adapter. All my VLANs were removed during the update. I can recreate them, but they are disabled by default. When trying to enable them, the popup message briefly says “enabling” and then “enabled” but they stay disabled. I’ve tried reinstalling drivers and even reloading a 1709 image and removing the VLANs before updating to 1803. As of now, I’m back on 1709 with feature updates delayed indefinitely.

    1. Cargado said on May 9, 2018 at 9:34 pm

      And not only that, the Intel Teaming function for LAN (Link Aggregation) does not work anymore (again). You can create one, but says “disabled”. Trying to enable does nothing, it stays disabled.

    Once again Microsoft cocked it up why why can they not just update the system with out changing all you personal settings like sound . Also Recycle bin not working properly. If they are going to have updates why can they not get them right before rolling them out. I have had to spend quite a bit of time putting things right and back to my personal settings. This should NOT happen Microsoft take note.

    I have an old Dell netbook I use for testing that currently runs Windows 10 and 3-5 flavours of Linux at any given time. Updated to Win10 1803 overnight. Was pleasantly surprised that Classic Shell reconfigured itself without crashing and seems to be working properly. On the other hand, my first pass through settings uncovered several privacy items that needed to be turned off again (location, camera, microphone and way more). Furthermore, my PDF and e-book default readers had been changed to Edge, and a handful of graphics format viewer defaults had been changed back to the Pictures app instead of Paint.NET. I have since restored them to my preferences, not Microsoft’s. I don’t really use Win10 for much on this machine, so I don’t know when I’ll get back to checking for other changes I didn’t get asked about or agree to, but I expect to find more.

    1. Agent Smith said on May 1, 2018 at 6:07 pm

      Yes, every major Windows 10 update, and I think cumulative updates too, revert you custom file and format associations. It happened on my computer every time.

      1. Sophie said on May 2, 2018 at 8:48 am

        It is so unforgivable to revert settings and associations!! How is it that my Kindle Tablet manages to install large updates during the year, and I can’t remember a single time that any setting was spoiled or changed. Of course, a completely different O/S , platform, complexity…etc….. but all personal things are retained there, yet Windows just tramples on everything. Its crazy!!

      2. Anonymous said on May 2, 2018 at 5:29 pm

        I think MS just likes to make it difficult for their users. Ahhh… just release the version and let them fix the issues. When we get time we’ll look at the bugs. So much for the open Architecture amongst the vendors. I’m actually starting to think MS intentionally does this to force users to use their own app’s i.e., Edge…?! The NO competition rule!!

      3. Sophie said on May 2, 2018 at 5:46 pm

        @Anonymous – you are certainly right that MS don’t care about their customers, and this is re-inforced and fostered by the idea that Windows 10 was “free”. This latter point removes a lot of any responsibility towards us, that might have once been…

        And they do try to push us to their apps, it is exactly their strategy. Either there are those that don’t know how to change that, and put up with it….or the rest that do know, but give up and use their apps anyway!

        But one truth almost certainly always remains, that 3rd party developers and vendors nearly always make a better job than Microsoft, and so the battle is never ending!

    On Windows Defender, the “Device Security” section tells me that “a firmware update is needed for your security processor (TPM)”. When I click through it takes me here (

    I use an HP laptop so after some research I figured out the appropriate update for me. Unfortunately when I download and attempt to install, it tries to install an older firmware version than the one I’m currently running. I recently updated mine thanks to Meltdown/Spectre updates.

    So for the moment I’m at a bit of a loss.

    1. Dirgster said on May 1, 2018 at 9:39 pm

      Have you tried disconnecting any peripherals before an attempt of downloading/installing, like an external hard drive, printer, etc.? Doing so helped me. Also, make sure your computer is not set to go to sleep during the process.

    It worked correctly for a couple of reboots and I even played my games to be sure. However, I got a near blue screen of death (near death experience :) ) on the last boot. My desktop took ages to load and the mouse would be stuck on one end of the desktop. The whole computer was not responding, reminiscent of Windows 98 freezes. I shutdown the PC and did a reboot.

    It worked fine this time and I saw from the eventlog that it had a near blue screen. I originally suspected a driver issue. It seems that there are still bugs in this version. My PC is working fine now, except for the “Windows.old” folder which I cannot delete despite clearing my hard disk after the upgrade

    1. Jason said on May 1, 2018 at 7:42 pm

      I have the same problem with Windows.old folder. I made an image after installing April 2018 update. I tried removing the folder using the Cleanup option. It seemed to remove most files to reclaim the space, but the folder and Users folder inside remains. When I tried to manually delete the folder it says that the folder no longer exists on the C:\ drive.

      I then restored the image and I booted Windows 7 PE disk and tried the delete the Windows.old folder manually. It removed everything that Cleanup did, but the same folders remain and it too says Window.old folder does not exist. It must be a bug, Hope MS fixes this soon.

        Open a command prompt with admin privileges (Task mamager –> File –> Run new task –> tick the create this task with administrative privileges –> type “cmd” (no quotes) in the input box –> type “RMDIR C:\Windows.old /s” (no quotes) to remove the ghost directory. You don’t even need to be in Safe mode to do it.

      2. H. Wijk said on May 3, 2018 at 12:00 am

        The map C:\Windows.old is no longer in use after the clean up. But it contains some directories with very long names (i.e. maps containing data for Cortana) which somehow prevents deletion. Rename those directories after which you will be able to remove them, including C:\Windows.old.

      3. Raj said on May 3, 2018 at 12:59 pm

        No I renamed all the files. But I still cannot delete. It seems the problem lies in the final folder which I cannot rename or delete at all. Well it is not taking any space. It is just an annoying folder. Once Windows 1803 is updated and those bugs fixed, I will do a full wipe and reinstall. At this point, I would rather have all my apps working and get things going.

        On a very positive note, Windows has finally included a section to fix scaling on apps and resolve the blurry fonts. I used to curse Windows 10 for the blurry fonts even on Office 365. The fonts all look sharp now like they did in Windows 7. The section for fixing scaling is under Display > Advanced Scaling Settings > Let Windows fix apps which look like shit :p

  232. Cinikal said on May 1, 2018 at 11:52 am

    1st attempt failed but 2nd went ok. Many of my settings like in services, internet options even touch pad settings changed or reverted to default. That is probably expected with a major update?!? By far spent more time getting it set up then installing, however do have 3 accounts. Havent had a real chance to check for issues yet but so far… One thing curious about is why Edge browser is running in the background at logon an why ccleaner has such a hard time closing it. Also Shutup10 finds a couple telemetry settings occasionally getting reset, will be keeping an eye on it.

    some things in the security centre seems a bit messed up. it keeps popping something that tells me page unavailable – it admin limited access to some areas of the app. (what admin.. it’s the admin account!) eg.. i can’t manually scan a selected item with win defender (i have 3rd party security suite installed) as that warning pops up instead, but i can tell it to do a quick scan of whatever it is that ms has selected.

    the firewall portion shows the 3rd party suite is on, but it also says windows defender firewall is on.

    right clicking on the pinned stuff on taskbar seems to me to be displaying what they were displaying before. eg.. firefox shows open new tabs, etc

    the speak enhancement is a driver update thing. every time you update your audio drivers it happens (also video drivers, if you select the audio driver bit). has been that way for years.

    i can’t change my feedback frequency either.

      6. Then Select the US Keyboard and choose remove.

      Until they fix this, it will help when the computer change the language randomly, so you don’t have to keep changing it.

      I got the same problem!! However, I have recovered to the old version.

      Same here, very annoying indeed!

      Yep, I cuncur, very annoying!

    didn’t understand some things
    settings->security->device security->core virtualisation->memory integrity on/off
    can’t figure out if i should have that on and there are reports on tenforum that it’s buggy insofar as you can’t turn it off without going into registry

    at least i don’t have to sign in to ms account to get their free fonts in the store..

    Logging in caused my account to crash back onto the login screen. May have happened due to having UXpatcher/7+ taskbar tweaker/classic shell running on launch. Went into Safe mode fine, but metro elements did not work, opening the themes settings made the Settings application crash. Luckily after disabling these things from startup and uninstalling the uxpatcher, it was all fine again. I then proceeded by setting everything up again, all went fine.

    As said in the main post, the audio settings got reverted to defaults and the microphone was invisible to all applications (even non metro).

    The mouse lag is there and has always been there for me on Windows 10, I am unsure if this is caused by the AMD gpu or merely the triple buffered vsync on the desktop. I notice it becoming worse with every update (which is likely a placebo as I hope the new version to fix this).

    Idle disks still spin up randomly.

    1. JoeDoedel said on May 15, 2018 at 11:04 pm

      try to set mouse pointer scheme to “none” under advanced settings.

      This has fixed for me the lagging of the mouse cursor.

      1. Anne said on June 29, 2018 at 11:30 pm

        I tried that but no change in the mouse lag. I find it is worst after I’ve typed something, deleted email, closed a window, or used keyboard shortcuts.

    I notice :
    – Thumbnails no longer generated for (most) MKV files.
    – Users report that they can’t change the “feedback frequency” setting under Privacy > Diagnostics & feedback anymore. On my system, it states “Windows Insider Program manages this option” even though the PC never joined the program.

    ASUS AI Charger Plus has been uninstalled automatically because of a problem of compatibility… No update available.

    1. gef950 said on May 1, 2018 at 9:31 am

      How about ASUS USB Charger Plus?

      1. LUIS said on September 17, 2018 at 4:43 am

        I have fix that problem installing the ASUS USB Charger Plus Service 5.0.4, donwloaded from that site: . I downloaded, from Microsoft Store, the USB Charger Plus utility (from ASUSTeK Computer) at the same time.

        I don´t know if it is working because I have downloaded both utilities or if just that v5.0.4 works alone. I preffer don’t try to find out. My laptop is a ROG GL552VW running Windows 10 Pro.

        Hope you all can fix that guys.

        I found the lastest version there but it don’t work wih my laptop (Asus UX430UA).
        Here is the link:

        I’ve opened a case on the Asus support and I’m waiting for a response.

      7. Michael Lee said on June 10, 2018 at 9:55 am

        just upgraded my ASUS N56VZ laptop to Windows 10 Build 1803 and ASUS Charger Plus seems not working anymore (the icon didn’t change to charging mode) even with the latest 4.2.2 version installed ( website), please help!

      8. Sam said on June 10, 2018 at 12:38 pm

        I’m in contact with Asus about this problem. They told me to try version 4.2.2 but obviously it don’t work so now I’m waiting a fix from them.
        If I have news I’ll told you.

      9. Michael Lee said on June 11, 2018 at 4:46 pm

        suspect it could be the USB controller APM settings that could have caused the ASUS USB Charger+ program/service from working properly, so tried disabling the APM mode in all USB ports (including xHCI) and rebooted the laptop but still the same problem! sighhh…

      10. Sam said on May 26, 2018 at 7:24 pm

        Me too, the program is started in the task bar but the icon don’t change, so the fast charge don’t work.

        Any fix?

  238. Konstantinos said on May 1, 2018 at 9:03 am

    I clean installed 17134.1 and updated to .5 using a .CAB and DISM. The only problems I have encountered are:
    1)I cannot change the feedback frequency(says Insider manages this) but I used a registry tweak and set it to 0(aka Never)
    2)I cannot disable background apps. It always turns back on after 1, 2 or even 3 restarts. I believe I used a registry tweak but the on switch keeps turning back on

  239. awd said on May 1, 2018 at 8:50 am

    well shit… i guess that means i have to fiddle with flashing bios again. stupid asus doesn’t tell us what bios update does what and i was hoping to put it off until i know they’ve included intel spi fix as i only did the windows microcode for spectre and not bios yet.

    1. Dooley said on May 15, 2018 at 3:30 am

      All ASUS BIOS ROMs released 3/2018 and forward should contain the Meltdown/Spectre microcode patch. I’ve confirmed that my personal board, and other boards in my inventory are patched with a stable Meltdown/Spectre patch that does not cause random reboots, as previous ones did.

      The ASUS BIOS update page should have “Update CPU Microcode 0x84” listed. I’m 99.8% certain this is the patch.

    2. Anonymous said on May 4, 2018 at 12:15 am

      YES< i have ASUS., and the driver for the BIOS is old legacy or whtever it is called not updated and windows bios driver the same, so same issue with BIOS been months now, called several times still not fixed.. this update is a mess.( the fix intel spectre , etc. I am a newbie and at home trying to fix all the this the best i can!

  240. iron2000 said on May 1, 2018 at 8:06 am

    I got a BSOD on the first Windows Update try.
    It reverted back to previous version, logged on and Windows Update prompted again.
    Update successful on second attempt.

  241. RossN said on May 1, 2018 at 7:14 am

    ClassicShell start menu seems to be working for me. Early days though.

    FileHistory appears to still be working. I thought that was deprecated?

    1. PJBeee said on June 1, 2018 at 1:22 pm

      Client using ProVenue (from on network. ProVenue seems to be broken as of 1803.

      Classic Shell needs to be coaxed into running on some W10 boxes; on one PC (so far – I expect to see more of this issue), I needed to add its exe to the Startup folder as a quick fix. It now loads OK on login. Hopefully Classic Shell will be picked up and maintained by someone soon (will even pay for this!).

      1803 update on W10 x86 resets config.nt (built-in DOS emulator) to default.

    2. Martin Brinkmann said on May 1, 2018 at 7:15 am

      Deprecated does not mean removed. Paint is there as well but it will be removed eventually and replaced by Paint3D (argh).

      1. BR said on May 1, 2018 at 4:42 pm

        Where is it listed as deprecated?

      2. BR said on May 1, 2018 at 6:14 pm

        The only mention of File History there is a comment which says, “I’m glad to see that File History is not on the list.”

    I have encountered this:

    Thumbnails no longer generated for (most) MKV files.

    1. René M said on October 18, 2018 at 10:55 am

      This is My Experince with Windows and hardware vendors latest patchware. PS Tried to add this to Windows Forum too but i keep getting “Ups something went wrong please try again later” :O

      Extreme system slow-down after windows 10 feature update 1803 – Critically low system performance.

      Hello All Affect by By Spectre & Meltdown Patchware,

      I Sadly have the the same issues as mentioned in this thread, after my windows 10 Pro got upgraded to build 1803.

      Im Running:
      Lenovo ThinkPad T440P
      CPU: I7-4710MQ, 2,49 GHz
      RAM : 16GB
      HD: 500GB SSD (And plenty of space left for OS)

      Before all the buggy patching by hardware and software vendors, I was running multiple windows applications parallel with WM Ware Virtual Machines without breaking a sweat.

      First Issue: Now my Laptop Fan runs full throttle even though there is hardly any CPU load.

      Other issues are the extremely slow OS Performance: Resizing windows Lags like hell and I have to wait like 5 sec before I see popup window when I right click desktop, and creating folders or renaming stuff in explorer also show similar behavior, that is windows loading cursor for 5 sec or more, Copying and moving files, keeps the progress box on the screen for 5 sec or more and just shows 99%. Its the same deal with launching an application, Extremely slow performance and even worse when I start a Virtual Machine The Virtual OS tages ages to boot and hardly respond to any commands and when It finally responds I have waited several minutes just to move the f&%#/”( cursor around :/.

      Even a simple task like showing a help popup text, when you hover over icons, ex. in windows start bar, takes ages to appear on the screen. To Sum it up my Laptop OS has been totally fked up by these buggy patches Microsoft, Lenovo and Intel have pushed out without showing some kind of warning that I might be a good idea to make a full system backup before applying “critical system updates” :(

      PS. I really wish microsoft would go back to thier Double confirmation technique again :/

    2. kkk said on July 13, 2018 at 12:25 pm

      i ran into problem that i couldnt install any apps with windows store eneded up with error code, but i have a slolution for this . you just need to disable a ransomware at windows defender and it will install apps again.

    3. drew said on May 14, 2018 at 12:52 pm

      so its the 13th and after four really messed up updates windows came out with a version of the update with the only problem being secrutiy firmware needed updating and clear the old one took two failed atttempts to get the firm ware to install right but after 12 hours of dl and the run around with microsoft and hp i found out who hp gets to do the firmware for the tmp and there is 8 major compayies out there with a working fix im loving 1804 for one they got appx and superfetch to slow the front door on there heavy use of disk and ram dropped the glitching and falling apart homegroup and gave two new ways to share should check the fourms out

    4. Anjan Singh said on May 2, 2018 at 5:52 pm

      I updated to 1803 and since then I have seen atleast 10 times the famous blue screen and when its on every 5 secs it freezes the desktop, chrome stops and bluetooth vanishes. Totally irritating

      1. steve said on December 18, 2018 at 6:58 am

        1803 forces uefi bios on boot alot of amd cards are legacy bios the rx580 first amd to ship uefi bio’s the b450 + motherboards have dual; boot legacy and uefi settings but untill the other day i got blue screens black screens and shut downs on first boot second boot and 3rd it would run was so bad tyhe new asus bios seems smoother no reboots yet

      2. Boots said on May 18, 2018 at 5:04 pm

        Reinstall your graphic drivers, fixed the problem for me.
