The latest Patch Tuesday release has brought many interesting updates to the table. Microsoft rolled out KB3206632 to Windows 10 version 1607, taking the OS build number to 14393.576.

More specifically, cumulative update KB3206632 fixes the annoying power issues caused by Windows Hello, some app compatibility bugs, and also brings many security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Uniscribe.

As it happens with every Windows 10 cumulative update, KB3206632 also brings issues of its own. Many users who installed the update have already started reporting various bugs. In this article, we’re going to list the most frequent KB3206632 issues reported by Windows 10 users, so that you don’t get surprised should you encounter them.

Windows 10 KB3206632 reported bugs


KB3206632 install fails

Many users report they can’t install KB3206632 because the download process gets stuck. It appears that once the download reaches 95%, it suddenly stops. If you’re experiencing this issue when installing KB3206632 through Windows Update, try downloading the update from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

Help please. How do i get out of this latest update that is stuck at 95% like others reported.  I updated yesterday to: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3201845). I wasn’t having any problems, but like a fool I went and started the latest update of 12/13/2016

Some users confirm that Windows 10 eventually manages to install KB3206632 after a few hours. If you’re patient enough, don’t take any action when you notice that the download process got stuck. After 2 or 3 hours, the download should go to 100%. However, bear in mind that this “method” doesn’t always work.


KB3206632 causes BSoD errors

Windows 10 users also report that KB3206632 causes BSoD issues, preventing them from actually using their computers. More specifically, when computers restart after installing the update, Windows 10 crashes with the STOP CODE BAD POOL HEADER error message. The only solution to fix the STOP CODE BAD POOL HEADER error is to remove KB3206632 via the restore point.

KB3206632 causes STOP CODE BAD POOL HEADER on reboot after it installs. […]
Upon shut down KB3206632 installed itself once again and I was back to a crash on restart with the same STOP CODE BAD POOL HEADER.[…] I repeated this 5 times with exactly the same results. KB3206632 installs PC boots to STOP CODE BAD POOL HEADER.


KB3206632 breaks many Windows 10 functions

Update KB3206632 also breaks a series of Windows 10 functions. According to users’ reports, this update completely breaks the following apps: the Start button, Search Button, volume button, clock, Notification button, display properties and the Settings menu. When users try to activate the Windows 10 functions listed above, they simply remain unresponsive.

the following functions do NOT work … Start button (also the right click option on start button), Search Button, Volume button, clock, Notification button, display properties, settings menu.
The Icon on the task bar do work normally. (file explorer, word, excel, firefox…)
I can not power off machine unless I go through Task manager. Ran SFC /scannow ….results show’- restore protection could not perform the requested function


KB3206632 downloads multiple time

Many Windows 10 users complain they can’t install KB3206632, while other don’t know how to stop the update from downloading. As surprising as this may sound, KB3206632 downloads multiple times, eating up free SSD space. Fortunately, the user who first reported this problem managed to solve it by manually installing the update.

The update that windows tries to download is KB3206632 There are currently ~48.000 files and about 50GB of space used. The **** Microsoft support told me to reinstall my windows. I need help ASAP! My SSD is dying


KB3206632 causes high disk usage

This is one of the issues initially caused by KB3201845, the previous update that made many computers unusable. Unfortunately for some users, KB3206632 fails to fix this problem completely. Indeed, after installing KB3206632 there are moments when disk usage falls below 100%, but the miracle only lasts for a few minutes.

I have the same problem too. After KB3201845 100% disk usage, Chrome not working […] After the new update KB3206632, nothing has changed except disk usage occasionally falls below 100% for a few minutes and goes right back up!
