Windows 10 fail as new update breaks the Net - here’s the way to fix it

Microsoft Feb 05, 2020

Sound issues have also been reported

Windows 10’s string of broken updates has now gone well beyond a joke - because it seems that the newest update to be released by Microsoft has been causing network and sound issues for a few users.

Microsoft has recently released Windows 10 KB4532695, an update for Windows 10 that was alleged to fix problems with Windows 10’s search function, and after only a couple of days it emerged that instead of fixing problems, it had caused some serious issues, including boot failures.

It’s now become apparent that the Windows 10 KB4532695 update has also introduced other serious problems, with Windows Latest reporting that users are complaining that as soon as they’ve installed the update, the sound stops performing on their PC.

According to Windows Latest, one user on Microsoft’s community forum complained that “I installed the update Saturday afternoon and immediately the sound stopped working,” with Windows 10 not recognising their speakers.

Not only is that incredibly annoying, but, rather worryingly, it seems the matter didn’t get away once the user uninstalled the update - and it even persisted after they performed a full reinstall of Windows 10.

Connectivity woes

Another incredibly frustrating problem with the newest Windows 10 Update has also emerged, with users complaining that their network connectivity has been impacted - meaning they can't hook up with the web .

The issue seems to be impacting bother wired Ethernet connections, also as Wi-Fi connections, and affects network adapters from a variety of manufacturers.

While some people aren’t ready to hook up with the web in the least , others are reporting that they will still hook up with the online , but their internet speeds are severely limited.

Using Windows 10’s built-in network troubleshooter doesn’t fix the difficulty - the sole option is to uninstall the updated.

If you’ve encountered network problems after installing the newest Windows 10 update, then this is often the way to fix those network issues.

Open up the Settings app (click the beginning menu then the cog icon), then click ‘Update & Security’.

From the window that appears, click ‘View update history’, then ‘Uninstall updates’ and choose ‘KB4532695’.

Hopefully this may sort the difficulty for you until Microsoft releases yet one more update to repair the issues its last update introduced. Microsoft seriously must confirm that subsequent update solves these problems without adding new ones – otherwise it'd find its reputation suffers even more.
