The New Windows 10 Update Is Making Users Miserable

The latest update of Windows, called Windows 10 1903, offers a lot of new useful features, but it also has a long list of issues.

Wi-Fi disconnects, no sounds, the Start Menu fails and a bunch of errors

On tech forums, many people complain about errors after updating their Windows 10. Some of the most common issues are the slow performance, crash applications, battery drainage, unstable internet connection, etc., along with other errors varying among different apps and devices in use. Worse, some users said that their PCs couldn’t even start or lose data after the update.

On its official website, Microsoft released a long list of the issues with Windows 10 1903 that it confirmed and are being fixed. Some of the most widely met errors include:

  • NEC and Microsoft have discovered incompatibility issues in some devices powered by Intel Centrino 6205/6235 as well as Broadcom 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards when they run Windows 10 1903.
  • Failure in connecting with sound devices via Bluetooth.
  • Some certain games have quieter audio or the audio is different than expected.
  • The Start menu and the search bar don’t work.
  • Orange tint on Snips and Screenshots.
  • Windows Desktop Search may not give any results while SearchUI.exe is likely to have a high usage of CPU after the installation of KB4512941.
  • You may not be able to install updates and receive an error “Error 0x80073701” and “Updates Failed, There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later.”

As of now, Microsoft has managed to fix a few issues, but there are still many others under investigation.

So, unless you have to get one of the new features in Windows 10 1903, you shouldn’t get this update to avoid problems.
