Microsoft releases a fix for the known issues in the October 2018 Update

When Microsoft released the now withdrawn Windows 10 October 2018 Update it included a number of known issues, which was surprising given it was the version that was supposed to roll out to all Windows 10 users. Microsoft withdrew the update due to a file deletion bug (since fixed) but the rollout has not been resumed yet.

Microsoft have released a patch for the October 2018 Update (1809) update taking the build to 17764.104. The patch which is going out to the slow ring and release preview ring fixes the known issues in the October 2018 including fixes for task manager, connected standby and driver issues. After installing, you will need to reboot your machine.

Here are the changes:

  • We have fixed the issue where the incorrect details were being shown in Task Manager under the “Processes” tab.
  • We fixed an issue where in certain cases IME would not work in the first process of a Microsoft Edge user session.
  • We fixed an issue where in some cases applications would become unresponsive after resuming from Connected Standby.
  • We fixed several issues causing application compatibility problems with 3rd-party antivirus and virtualization products.
  • We fixed several issues with driver compatibility.
