Windows 10 KB4058258 fails to install and breaks audio
Microsoft has had an irregular update release pattern lately. The company rolled out quite a large number of patches in January and wanted to end the month in style, so it pushed another update right on January 31.
Windows 10 KB4058258 fixes a few monitor color issues, improves caption and subtitle rendering in video playback and adds additional fixes for the annoying unbootable state error on AMD computers.
For more information about the full changelog, you can check out Microsoft’s Support page.
This update also brings three known issues to the table. Actually, two of them (error 0x80070643 and install issues on PCs running certain antivirus tools) are inherited from the previous release.
As far as the third issue is concerned, you should know that after installing this update, some users may experience issues logging into some websites when using third-party account credentials in Microsoft Edge.

today my audio completely cut out. It worked perfectly up until today, and I don’t think there was any significant change or update, so I’m not sure why it stopped working. […] there are several updates appearing in the Windows Update menu and its “View installed update history” section […] One of these is “2018-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4058258).” I tried the Windows Update troubleshooter, but to no success.
