Another moth, another Patch Tuesday for Microsoft’s. Along with other updates, Redmond pushed cumulative update KB4053579 for Windows 10 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update) and Windows Server 2016. The new update changes the OS build number to 14393.1944.

As that’s the case with most cumulative updates for Windows, update KB4053579 brings no new features to the system. Just bug fixes and system improvements.

Here’s the complete changelog of cumulative update KB4053579 for Windows 10 v1607 and Windows Server 2016:

  • Addresses issue where users of SQL Server Reporting Services may not be able to use the scrollbar in a drop-down list.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Addresses issue where, after you install KB4041688, KB4052231, or KB4048953, the error “CDPUserSvc_XXXX has stopped working” appears. Additionally, this resolves the logging of Event ID 1000 in the Application event log. It notes that svchost.exe_CDPUserSvc_XXXX stopped working and the faulting module name is “cdp.dll”.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Microsoft Edge.

Besides KB4053579, Microsoft also released cumulative updates for all supported versions of Windows 10, including: cumulative update KB4054517 for Windows 10 v1705 (Fall Creators Update), cumulative KB4053580 for Windows 10 v1703, and KB4053578 for Windows 10 v1511.

  • Yeah, I get it. Micorsoft WIndows is a “service,” so they feel they can come into my PC and mess around with no repercussions. I wonder what the monetary impact of these unwanted and bricking updates does to the US economy every year? I can no longer set it to not update, just defer. And really, that doesn’t mean much, because there will come a day, like mine did today, where my computer was bricked again by an update I didn’t ask for. OK, so it’s not bricked, but now, my HDD does not stop spinning. It runs at 100% all the time, which makes it excruciating to do anything. If I had a dollar for every minute I was down because of Microsoft “upgrading my service”, I’d be able to take a nice vacation. They have done more egregious things to my company than any hacker. It is ridiculous. I want to permanently disable any updates. How can I? Very frustrating.
