Microsoft recently pushed out a new Windows 10 cumulative update that aims at improving its overall system stability and performance. KB3199209 is actually a servicing stack update and doesn’t bring any major fixes or improvements.

As usual, Microsoft rolled out KB3199209 before publishing the support article for this update. Many Windows 10 users installed the update as soon as it became available without actually knowing anything about its content.

The Redmond giant eventually published the support article for KB3199209 about ten hours after the update became available. The update description is very general and doesn’t reveal how exactly it improves the servicing stack stability.

Servicing stack update for Windows 10 Version 1607: October 18, 2016
This update makes stability improvements for the Windows 10 Version 1607 servicing stack.

Since KB3199209 doesn’t bring any new features, no reboot is required after you install the update. Cumulative update KB3199209 doesn’t have any installation issues either, which is actually surprising taking into account Windows 10’s update history. The two previous updates, KB3194798 and KB3194496, often failed to install and after users managed to install them, the updates brought many issues of their own.

Speaking of issues, it appears that KB3199209 also causes issues of its own just like the previous updates: Windows 10 users have reported the Wi-Fi connection often crashes after they installed the update. Moreover, other apps such as Facebook are also affected by random crashes and games take several minutes to load.

However, it does appear these KB3199209 issues are pretty rare and affect only a limited number of users.

However, if you’re having issues on your PC or you simply want to avoid them for the future, we recommend you to download this tool to fix various PC problems, such as file loss, malware and hardware failure.
