Another month, another Patch Tuesday. This time, Microsoft released the new cumulative update KB4038788 for Windows 10 version 1703.

This is a regular cumulative update for the system, which means it brings no new features. Its main focus is improving the overall stability, and of course, fixing some of the known issues caused by previous updates. And this time, cumulative update KB4038788 indeed brings a handful of bug fixes.

Here’s the complete changelog of update KB4038788 for Windows 10:

  • “Addressed issue where the color profiles do not revert to the user-specified settings after playing a full-screen game.

  • Addressed issue where revoking a certificate associated with a disabled user account in the CA management console fails. The error is “The user name or password is incorrect. 0x8007052e (WIN32: 1326 ERROR_LOGON_FAILURE)”.

  • Addressed issue where LSASS is leaking large amounts of memory.

  • Addressed issue where enabling encryption using syskey.exe renders the system unbootable.

  • Addressed issue in Internet Explorer where undo is broken if character conversion is canceled using IME.

  • Addressed issue with the EMIE where Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer repeatedly switched between each other.

  • Addressed issue where a device may stop responding for several minutes and then stop working with error 0x9F (SYSTEM_POWER_STATE_FAILURE) when a USB network adapter is attached.

  • Addressed issue where some apps cannot be opened because the IPHlpSvc service stops responding during the Windows boot procedure.

  • Addressed issue where spoolsv.exe stops working.

  • Addressed issue where the Get-AuthenticodeSignature cmdlet does not list TimeStamperCertificate even though the file is time stamped.

  • Addressed RemoteApp display issues that occur when you minimize and restore a RemoteApp to full-screen mode.
