More Windows 10 nightmares as latest Microsoft update could slow down your PC

It’s not been a happy time for some Windows 10 users. Just last week we brought you news that a recent update was causing PCs to crash and display the ominous blue screen of death.  Things were so bad for some users, Microsoft suggested removing the update entirely with the firm saying: “If you are encountering issues or receiving errors related to signtool.exe, you can uninstall the optional update KB4535996.”

If that wasn’t bad enough it now seems another set of patches are causing even more grief for fans of this hugely popular operating system.

According to the team at Window Latest, some updates are slowing down the boot speeds of PCs and even making simple tasks frustratingly sluggish.

The affected versions appear to be KB4535996, KB4540673 with the latest reports also suggesting KB4551762 might be causing issues.

Users have been moaning about the problems on forums and Windows Latest has also run numerous tests to see if they can discover what’s going wrong.

Loading KB4535996 on three separate machines resulted in a performance slowdown – once uninstalled the original performance of the hardware returned to normal.
