Unfortunately, the saga of technical glitches doesn’t end here. Recent reports suggest that KB4517389 is now causing BSOD errrors.

On my laptop machine (but not on my desktop) I started getting BSOD failures in cldflt.sys after installing KB4517389. […]Uninstalling KB4517389 fixes the problem. Presumably, disabling cldflt.sys would do so, too, but I haven’t tried that yet.
