Many Windows 10 users wish they hadn’t installed KB3201845 on their computers. This cumulative update literally makes computers unusable, breaking many OS functions.

Microsoft’s forums are full of reports about the many issues caused by KB3201845, yet Redmond has never officially acknowledged them. This makes users even angrier since the latest Windows 10 cumulative updates have caused more problems than they’ve fixed.

One thing is sure: Users wish Microsoft ended its update experiments and tested the patches thoroughly before releasing them.

The company recently pushed a new cumulative update to Windows 10. Windows 10 KB3206632 is the second update released in a four-day period, perhaps in an attempt to fix the issues caused by the previous updates.

As a result, all the users affected by various KB3201845 issues hoped the latest Windows 10 cumulative update would fix these bugs once and for all. Well, that’s not exactly the case: Windows 10 KB3206632 brings its own share of issues and fails to solve many of the bugs caused by KB3201845.

Windows 10 KB3206632 is better than KB3201845, but it’s not flawless

As a quick reminder, here are some of the issues caused by KB3206632: Install fails, BSoD error loops, an unresponsive Start Menu, and more. Unfortunately, KB3206632 doesn’t completely fix the high disk usage problem caused by the previous update. At the same time, there are a series of Windows 10 functions still unavailable.

Indeed, judging by user reports, KB3206632 doesn’t break third-party program such as Google Chrome or Google Calendar. However, the Settings menu, the Search bar or the Display Properties app randomly fail to work.

I have the same problem too. After KB3201845 100% disk usage, Chrome not working, Skype, Origins or any app for that matter is not opening. Start menu and the action center not opening to even check the what was the windows update about. Uninstalled the update and Chrome opens, but its just a white screen. Action center and start menu buttons function and if I click on ‘All Settings’ or any app in start, all the problems faced shows up again. It is neither clickable again nor is the ‘settings’ and app clicked open! After the new update KB3206632, nothing has changed except disk usage occasionally falls below 100% for a few minutes and goes right back up!
