Patch Tuesday September 2017

Microsoft is expected to release a series of new Patch Tuesday updates today — get ready to install them. As usual, these updates won’t bring new features to the table, focusing instead on improving the overall system stability and patching the existing bugs.

UPDATE — Microsoft finally released this month’s Patch Tuesday updates. Here are the most important updates:

You can read the original story below.

For the time being, there is no information available regarding the change log of the upcoming updates. As is Microsoft’s habit, the company will most likely roll out the updates first, and publish the patch notes a few hours afterwards.

Patch Tuesday September edition: What we expect to see

First off, some of the previous updates bring a few issues of their own. For example, installing KB4034674 on Windows 10 PCs may change Czech and Arabic languages to English for Microsoft Edge as well as other apps. We expect Microsoft to fix this problem in this months’ Patch Tuesday edition.

On the other hand, Windows 7 users who installed KB4034664 have experienced a series of issues. For example, if your PC has more than one monitor connected, some apps may be affected by rendering issues. Also, the WordPad application can sometimes crash on launch after installing KB4025341. Of course, these bugs are affecting only a limited number of users, but they’ve been around for about one month now and it’s time that Microsoft fixed them once and for all.

Speaking of issues, Microsoft recently acknowledged the gaming issues in Windows 10 Creators Update. The company also confirmed that it has a fix for one of them in the Windows Insider build. Hopefully, the Redmond giant will release it as soon as possible and thus put at end to gamers’ suffering.

However, it’s highly unlikely that Microsoft fixes these Windows 10 gaming issues on this Patch Tuesday edition. The bugs have been affecting players ever since the Creators Update landed, and seem too complex for Microsoft to fix them that quickly. But you know what they say: hope dies last.

In order to install the latest Patch Tuesday updates, make sure you’ve enabled automatic Windows Update. Don’t forget to check for updates from time to time.

Speaking of updates, what are your expectations in terms of fixes? What issues do you hope that Microsoft will fix today? Let us know in the comments below.
