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:

    Start Menu worked before update, now it wont. Uninstalled the update – works again, then the auto update took over – and bango- Start Menu wont work again. Read that it was to FIX a Start Menu problem – yeah, it fixed it alright!

    I’m getting fairly consistent BC Code 119 crashes since this update, pointing to something called dxgmms2.sys, which I guess is part of the DirectX package.

    Installed fine but now my computer runs extremely slow and stuttery causing applications to freeze and/or close in random intervals

    My computer won’t reboot to install the update. I’m really getting fed up with Microsoft and all their updates that never work

    I have had the same problem for weeks my computer will not reload/start up windows. I have never had anything like this to happen to me. What ever is going on it’s not my computer/equipment. I know this after spending over $300.00 to be told not to bring my computer to their shop again then I paid more money to be told it was Microsoft/windows and not my equipment but if my computer shuts down, updates or power is turned off, I have to reload windows. Does anyone know Why??????
