As we were just telling you a short while ago, the KB3116900 update was just released for Windows 10 v1511, and now we’re hearing some early complaints regarding several problems regarding it.

KB3116900 issue on Windows 10 reported

According to a couple of users who have installed the update, some of the privacy settings are reversed to default again after the update, and we’re waiting for Microsoft to comment on this situation.

Another users says that the KB3116900 update for his x64 Windows 10 system failed with error code 0x80070020:

“Brand new patch (KB3116900) and same sh** as with KB3116908 and KB3120677… it will not install (code 0x80070020). I tried deletion of the uptate package from the download directory, manual install from the catalog, various “DISM.exe /Online …” approaches, several FixIt’s and sfc /scannow’s, turning of and on all kinds of services, safe boot’s and what do I know… can it really be so hard to build a cumulative patch that can simply be installed??? :(“

Somebody else is complaining about a very slow boot time after the most recent December 2015 updates that have been rolled out:

“After having updated Windows 10 to build 10586, boot time (to desktop) has increased from 8-10 seconds to 50-60 seconds, regardless o.s. is installed as an update or as a clean installation from ISO (o.s. on a Samsung 850 Pro SSD 256GB). The problem persists even after installation KB3116908 cumulative package of 02 December 2015. The problem persists even after installation KB3116900 cumulative package of 08 December 2015.”

One user says that after updating to build 10586.17 on x64, he has trouble with streaming video on the Chrome browser:

“I’m trying to watch the streaming video at this site: https://www.france24.com/en/ The video is stuttering, lagging the audio almost always, and sometimes completely freezes. One time Chrome asked me if I wanted to kill the page. Is anyone else having a problem with this site ? Can someone else try it, please ? Thanks!”

Some more complaints pour in regarding the taskbar:

“I updated this morning, and after the computer rebooted now my taskbar buttons don’t work (Start, Search, Notification center, etc.)”

One user has problems with the ratios and sizes of folders and new windows and games, among others:

“Currently having issues with the ratios and sizes of folders and new windows and games. Very infuriating. Am I the only one?
Also when I right click the game I’m playing, go to properties > compatibility > uncheck “disable display scaling for higher DPI monitors” then click OK, I can run the game and it works and looks fine for the first 10 seconds of loading, then right before it finishes loading it goes back to the tiny window that I don’t want and when I check to see compatibility, the box is rechecked even though I just unchecked it two minutes ago.”

What about you, has KB3116900 brought more trouble than it actually solved? If it only did good things, then go ahead and leave your comment below either way.

  • Updated yesterday and now shutdown/restart are extremely slow. Buttons/icons will not do anything when clicking on them. All processes seem so slow.

  • I updated 3 different pc’s this morning, and after the computer rebooted taskbar buttons don’t work (Start, Search, Notification center, etc.) and edge browser shuts down every time i try to open it…

  • Computer freezes and has to be switched off and restarted. Desktop and note book have the same problem. Especially when playing a video in Chrome.

  • KB3116900 stops WiFi after approx. 15 minutes. Happens on different brands of laptops running with different chip sets. Tried all sorts of fixes/work-arounds, but the only solution is to uninstall KB3116900. Naturally, Windows 10 will reinstall KB3116900 the next time I reboot. Thanks a bunch M$.
