The December Patch Tuesday edition hasn’t brought any major improvements to Windows 10 v1809. We all hoped these patches would finally fix all the annoying Windows 10 October Update issues reported by users, but it seems Microsoft needs more time to get the job done.

Windows 10 v1809 KB4471332 fixed the Windows Media Player seek bar issue and added a series of security updates to various OS components. But that’s all — there’s no fix for the recurrent BSOD errors experienced by Surface users, for example.

To add up to user frustration, KB4471332 also brings one minor bug of its own.

Some users noticed there are many users profile errors logged in the Event Viewer. While all these errors don’t seem to cause any major user profile issues, the fact that they’re there is indeed intriguing.

Here’s how one user describes this problem:

Today I received the Patch Tuesday Dec. updates which were KB4471332, KB4470788 and I also received Win 10 Version 1809. I had no problems with the installation of the updates nor have I seen or experienced any problems with my computer since the updates. I have noticed in my Event Viewer under Applications that I am now receiving numerous warnings about User Profile Service Event ID 1534 […]

The good news is that apart from this minor glitch, we didn’t find any other KB4471332 bug reports either. Theoretically, your computer should run just fine after downloading the latest updates.
