Here we go again, folks. If you haven't installed the latest Windows 10 update, you should probably steer clear.
The new patch is a cornucopia of serious issues that include slow boot times, program crashes and the blue screen of death.
The KB4535996 Windows 10 update has been available since 27 February and was partially issued as a fix for earlier reported bugs involving the search bar and user profiles. Instead, it's delivered even more pain for users. According to Forbes, some of the reported problems include:
- Blue screen of death at sign-in and randomly
- Problems booting
- System freezing crashes
- Frame rate drops
- Program crashes
- Audio issues
- Microsoft Visual Studio issues
If you have managed to avoid the update so far, try to keep it that way until the above is patched. There's no word on when that may be yet.
How to uninstall Windows 10 updates

- Type 'Windows 10 update KB453599' into the search box.
