Microsoft has been quite busy rolling out updates today for Preview versions of Windows 10 for PC and Windows 10 Mobile. It has also pushed out two more updates for the current stable RTM version of Windows 10, too.
These updates provide bug fixes, performance enhancements, and fixes for security vulnerabilities.
Microsoft Cumulative Update KB3105210
KB3105210 is a Cumulative update and provides fixes to security vulnerabilities for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. The support page summary states the following:
This update for Windows 10 includes functionality improvements and resolves the vulnerabilities in Windows that are described in the following Microsoft security bulletins and advisory:
- KB3096448 MS15-107: Cumulative security update for Microsoft Edge: October 27, 2015
- KB3096441 MS15-106: Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: October 27, 2015
Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3105210). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer.
Microsoft Update KB3106932
KB3106932 includes performance enhancements for the OS. According to the support page, Microsoft says: “This update makes improvements to ease the upgrade experience to Windows 10.”
Microsoft exec Terry Myerson wrote today about making it easier to upgrade to Windows 10 which is what this update addresses.
Both of these updates are available now and should install automatically. But if you want to get on top of the situation, head to Settings > Update & Security > Check for Updates.
I installed this on my main production box which is a Dell XPS 8700 and so far haven’t encountered any issues. However, that doesn’t mean other users will have a smooth experience. There are a million of different PCs out there with different setups and unique configurations.
In fact, we had a lot of feedback regarding the cumulative update KB3093266 which was released last month.
A restart of your PC is required to complete the installation, but keep in mind that you can control when Windows 10 restarts to best fit your schedule.
If you have any issues with these updates or notice any improvements to your PCs overall performance, let us know in the comment section below. Or, for specific questions and discussion join us in the Windows 10 Forums.
I’m just wondering why they made KB3106932 also available to Windows 10 while it should be aimed to upgrade to 10, likely from 7 or 8.1. My windows 10 received the update to ease upgrading to windows 10, doesnt make sense hehe.
I have been having big response problems with my system ever since KB3106932 was installed. The process “Service Host: Remote Procedure Call” gets super-hog-ish on both CPU and memory while I am trying to play Microshaft Solitaire Collection, making response times take up to 8 seconds. This is on a system with 16Gb RAM and a 6-core CPU. There’s no Uninstall for this update. MICROSHAFT SUCKS.
installed updates 5210/6932 today without any problems. I have system restore active and I use this frequently to create a manual restore point. But, low and behold, I have noticed that when system updates are installed (like today) no restore point is created. Surely, this is an oversight by Microsoft?
@colin carpenter. Since installing Win 10 I’ve also noticed (unlike in Win 7) that no restore points are created after installing updates. I create my own; but when I had to use a restore point it was completely screwed up! Figure that one. As of this point of time I use a system image instead.
I have stopped automatic updates downloading and take an image copy before proceeding. Beginning to wish I stayed with Windows 7.
this update may have fixed a restart problem i was having.. which was the desktop freezing after resarting.
Update kb3106932 make’s my PC crash in 5 to 10 minutes.. Removing it is the only option!
So, for me personaly i don’t use it anymore and have disabled Windows Update..
Unable to access Start Menu by clicking or pressing Windows key. Notifications not accessible either. I have to restore to an earlier point and then its usable again
I am facing both the issues encountered by Ian.Moreover I performed the command sfc /scannow after installing the updates involved.The result was that I have many damaged files.Before installing them the previous report was ok.
Hi Luca I carried out all the recommended scans and my files were OK
These updates just locked up my system and forced a hard reset. Presumably because Windows tried to apply them when I was using the system. It’s because of this nonsense that I always used “notify but on’t download” as my update setting in previous versions >.>
I really can’t stand relying on alternative news sources to find out what the hell Microsoft just installed on my computer. This lack of transparency by what is supposed to be a trusted company is really beginning to make me think at looking at other options.
Update installed automatically on both my Dell Laptop & my Asus Transformer. Both started to freeze & my wireless driver disappeared. I had to uninstall the update from both & now I have no issues.
Same here.. Nice to know there are others.
Well, I got to this site by trying to research what I could to to get Microsoft Update KB3106932 to install, as it keeps failing. With the above issues, I guess I’ll just hide this update unless someone has a better idea.
Before windows 10 when you got a update I had windows 7 it would let you see the history of what was successfully installed on your computer. But in windows 10 that feature has been removed How do you find out what is the latest install on your computer? All they let you do now is check for updates.
@ Anthony Benedetto: Type settings in the search bar; click on “settings – trusted windows app”. Now click on “Update and Security” – you will be directed to “Windows Update”, which will check for any new updates. Just below you will see a blue radio button “Advanced Options”. Click on that and you will be directed to a new window showing “successfully installed updates”. Unfortunately, it does not show unsuccessful updates – I think M/silly wants to keep those as a secret!
This new update has messed up my home computer. The start button has lost all its App’s. I have to right click to use the computer left click doesn’t work. Do I need to update again?
Ziggy thank you! I wish they would make thing a little better for the end user it’s like they don’t care do as we want its free this time. Some where down the road it’s going to cost us!!! Thanh you
Ziggy here is how you find it. Go to settings, then to update & security, then to advanced options, you will see under Defer updates view your update history. Thank you for the direction to help me find what I was looking for. Tony
That’s great if you can access settings. Even the Windows short cut doesn’t work for me. This is because the Windows key does not respond.My Start menu does not respond either however if I right click I can access the Control Panel and by typing updates in the search panel I can then access a list of all Windows updates. Unless Microsoft issue a fix for the menu in the next few days Im going to have to do a clean install and then reinstall all my applications
Well now that I have found how to use it I have 3 updates ready to install only problem is it has been running for 3 1/2 hours now and still not finished this windows 10 is an experiment on the public. That’s why its free!!!!!!!!!!!!
This update gives me video issues that I have not had before. All video either not playing or slow.
This update prevents my track pad and its buttons from working correctly, and the system will not let me uninstall it. I’m at my wit’s end with the damned thing. Why in God’s name does Windows 10 not create restore points before they change your system in a way that does more harm than good? Or allow you to uninstall those updates?
Go into install/uninstall programs and delete your touchpad and then go to your computers web site and download the driver applicable to your year model of PC, you will most likely need to do a re-start after deleting the driver forced on you from MS Windows 10.
Trouble is if you have automatic updates, Windows 10 will replace the driver again.
Update KB3106932 is the latest of problems that I had with windows 10. My sound would stop working and only way to fix was restore from an earlier date. It actually removed some of the files required. Every time that I fixed it, a day or two later, it would happen again. Finally narrowed down to this update but when I click it to uninstall, there is no uninstall option unlike the other updates that I have successfully uninstalled. I’ve had win 10 now for too long for the easy uninstall option but its time to go back my previous version. Any suggestions for the easiest route to return to previous OS without losing anything else, I’m tired of spending more time repairing than I am actually using. Looking at Linux now thanks to Win 10 constant issues and the lack of privacy it brings with it.
My problem is that from day one and every day since updates KB3106932 / 5210 are attempted to be downloaded, I get the message ‘Updates downloaded’ but when I check my updates there’s a page full of failed downloads for these updates and it’s only when you purposely check your download history that you appreciate the ‘Updates Downloaded’ is not necessarily true.
update kb3106932 cannot be uninstalled and it has caused me real headache as seeing errors on two HP MFDs..the second either machine connects to the network they go into fault mode. Previously I did uninstall this update which overcame the issue and intended to turn off auto update and the thing installed again.
How did you uninstall kb3106932?
