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

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?

      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.

    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

    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.

    Cannot remove US English keyboard that add itself to language list next to UK English and my native language. Previously I have to go to control panel to add said US keyboard (because it was only appear as keyboard but not explicitly install properly) and remove it. Now that keyboard setting move to modern Settings app I can’t remove US language pack or keyboard at all.

      US and UK keyboards are not completely identical so this is annoying but I have found a temporary workaround

      Temp Fix

      1. Goto Region & Language
      2. Under Preferred languages, choose English (United States)
      3. Click Options
      4. Under Keyboards, choose Add a keyboard
      5. Choose United Kingdom
      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.

    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.

    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.

      Lost brightness control, sliders move but have no effect.

      When making uBO permissions permanent Edge Browser resizes.

      Scrolling on some settings pages is unbelievably slow.

      Not a bug but right clicking to search with default search engine is gone.

      So far only minor issues. (knocks on wood)

    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

      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.

        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.

        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

    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 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4096377/windows-10-update-security-processor-tpm-firmware#firmwareupdates).

    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.

    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.

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!!

        @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!

    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.

    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.

      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.

      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…

      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 :)

      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.

    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.

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

      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).

    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.

    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.

      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: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4093836/summary-of-intel-microcode-updates

        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.

        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.

    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”.

    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… :(

      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.

    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…

    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.

    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

    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.

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 ..so far.

        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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

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.

    BTW: If you need to access the Advanced Options screen, but cannot get to your Desktop window to do so, I learned a new trick:

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

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.

    I updated a Dell 7040 from windows 7 to 1803 and it crashed my network. The system pulled a 169 address and jaked up my switches with spanning tree issues! This cost me a day of my life!

    Since i updated my pc, he is bugging completly. As soon as i start a game, or sometimes while loading anything, my ping jumps to the sky. I have like 1000 ms constantly, i don’t know what this is. I did the update today so if anyone has a solution for this one, i would be very grateful.

    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!

    Intel NIC teaming even with the software is not working with the April windows 10 update on PRO versions. Intel is aware and is going to produce an updated driver. Been two weeks and no word yet. Only workaround is to disable all but one NIC on the team or delete team entirely.

    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.

    Software that uses the Mailslot communication protocol to communicate between computers may be adversely affected by build 1803 as it no longer seems to allow sending to a mailslot on another computer.

    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 . . .

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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…

    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

    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.

    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…

    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!

    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.

    Here are my problems, once the update installed :

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Spent 4 days trying to fix & work out.
    Simply could not get working.

    Rolled back to 1709 & all fine.

    Some PC’s are Home versions so don’t have easy option to stop re-upgrade.
    How come this is only a PRO option!!
