If you run Windows 10 version 1607 (aka Anniversary Update) or Windows 10 version 1703 (aka Fall Creators Update) on an AMD powered computer, then you’ve got every reason on earth to download and install the latest OS updates.

It’s not Patch Tuesday, but Microsoft recently released KB4057142 and KB4057144 to fix the annoying boot up issues on AMD computers triggered by the previous patches.

The list of fixes and improvements that these two updates bring is quite a long one, and it includes fixes for printer delays, excessive memory use, authentication failure in Microsoft Edge, and more. It is worth mentioning that many of KB4057142’s fixes focus on Windows for enterprises.

KB4057144 changelog

  • Fixed the issue with printing PDFs in Microsoft Edge.
  • Addressed the issue where backwards compatibility for managing Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) with group policy is lost.
  • Fixed the issue where some Microsoft-signed ActiveX controls don’t work when Windows Defender Application Control (Device Guard) is enabled.
  • Addresses the issue where some applications are blocked from running by Windows Defender Device Guard or Windows Defender Application Control when the application runs in Audit only enforcement mode.
  • Addressed the issue where the virtual TPM self-test isn’t run as part of virtual TPM initialization.

KB4057142 changelog

  •  Addressed the issue with the App-V package folder access that causes the access control list to be handled incorrectly.
  • Fixed the issue that causes a delay when searching for new printers to add.
  • Addressed the issue where users may not be able to change passwords on the remote logon screen if the password has expired.
  • Fixed the bug where custom application defaults are sometimes not imported when using the DISM command.
  • All Microsoft-signed ActiveX controls should work now when the Windows Defender Application Control (Device Guard) is enabled.
