Although the Windows update KB4524147 released on October 3 is aimed to fix the intermittent issue with the print spooler service that may cause print jobs to fail, the fact is that there are many other latest Windows 10 update problems appearing. Get detailed information from the MiniTool website.

Introduction to Latest Windows 10 Update Problems

The Windows patch released on October 3 to solve printer-related problems not only does not completely solve this problem, but also causes more problems. Therefore, Microsoft quietly re-released the KB4524147 update on October 4.

Tip: In order to avoid the computer being unusable due to system updates, I highly recommend that you back up your operating system when the computer is running properly.

Many Windows-focused websites and technical help blogs have reported about Microsoft's latest Windows 10 update problems. These sites include Reddit, Microsoft's Answers forum, AskWoody, Neowin, Techdows, BornCity, Windows Latest, and BleepingComputer.

The severity of problems with Windows 10 update is not clear because the comments under Reddit’s and Microsoft Answers’ reports are fewer than a dozen comments.

Microsoft said that the print spooling problem that was introduced by the out-of-band security update from September 23 has been solved. And the new update, KB4524147, was released through Windows Update automatically.

But according to Born City, there were some users said that the print problem was not addressed. What’s worse, some users who didn’t have printer problems before reporting that they are suffering the problem after the latest Windows 10 update - KB4524147.

Microsoft may not be able to solve the printing failure caused by the patch and has distributed it more widely because the September 23 update was only distributed through the Windows Update Catalog.

Even more puzzling is that some Windows 10 users received a “critical error” message after updating to KB4524147, indicating that the Start menu is not working. Microsoft's message asks users to sign out of Windows and log in again.

As one of the latest Windows 10 update problems, this Windows patch is similar to a recent CPU fix that also broke the Start menu on Windows 10 version 1903.

The only method to solve the Start menu problem is to uninstall KB4524147, according to an affected user on the Answers forum of Microsoft. However, if affected users adopt this method, their computers will be exposed to serious security vulnerabilities that may have been used in targeted attacks and can be discovered by criminal attackers and used indiscriminately at some point.

Most importantly, Microsoft's optional cumulative update KB45172211 for Windows 10 version 1903 since September 26 has ruined Windows Search, VMware Workstations, as well as printers, as reported by MSPoweruser on Saturday.

And the last complication that may not be a big problem is that Microsoft reportedly re-released all the updates for October 3 and marked them as of October 4. AskWoody also pointed out that some of the patches from the so-called required updates on October 3 have now been removed from Windows Update.

Bottom Line

From this article, you can know that this new update KB4524147 has caused more troubles: Start menu, boot and printer problems. However, Microsoft has re-issued the update for KB4524147 on October 4.
