Updates KB3176936 and KB3176934 for Windows 10 improve system stability
The cumulative update KB3176934 is not a brand new update since it’s been available to Windows Insiders for almost a week now, but the good news is that it’s now available for non-Insiders as well. The two updates take the Anniversary Update to the 14393.82 version and mainly focus on improving overall system performance. No new operating system features are being introduced in these updates.
If you want to install the updates, go to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Check for updates. If you can’t install them automatically, you can also use Microsoft’s Update Catalog, but for that you need to run Internet Explorer 6 or later.
The change log includes:
- “Improved reliability of Network Controller, DNS server, gateways, Storage Spaces Direct, Group Managed Service Accounts, remote procedure calls (RPC), PowerShell, Internet Explorer 11, printer pairing and interoperability, the Windows kernel, Media Core, Windows Store, Connected Standby, Cluster Health service, the Hypervisor debugger and platform, and Active Directory.
