With the holiday break coming, there are no expected new Builds for Windows 10 up until 2017. However, cumulative updates were released by Microsoft with KB32113522 for the stable Anniversary update version and for the new Windows 10 Insider Build, KB3206309, which revamps Windows Defender.
The latest Windows update is said to be more of a security update. With the Anniversary Update version, the cloud-based protection of Windows 10 was automatically activated. When a suspicious file is monitored by Windows Defender, it notifies the cloud service and in return, the cloud service will block or allow it.
With regards to the issue on difficulty in internet connection after a Windows 10 update, resetting Windows’ network stack can provide a fix to the problem. As for issue about the update preventing PCs from getting Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) information from routers, this can be fixed by setting up a static IP address for the PC.
Meanwhile, for the issue of the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) in which installation time is too long and even end up with a failed attempt during initial installation, the Windows 10 version 1607 or KB3213522 update fixes this issue. According to critics, this update is a bit odd because apparently, it was not sent through the usual Automatic Update channels. Users need to install it manually after downloading it from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
Indeed, several issues were discovered with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update but there are fixes to the problem. With the problem of the Windows Store shortcuts being re-pinned to the Taskbar after installation, simply right-click the icons and choose “Unpin from Taskbar”. For the annoying ads on the Start Menu, simply go to Settings then Personalization, Start and deselect “Occasionally show suggestions on Start”.
Microsoft has been on its toes to provide fixes, such as in the case of Windows 10 DHCP bug. Having said that, users just need to wait for the future patches to be rolled out after the holidays.
