Hi,

So i think it will be a good idea to collect bugs/issues encountered by our members , and if possible gives solutions/fixes.

- Please don't report several time the same issues , if it was already mentioned , just quote it to show that you encountered it.

- Don't post things irrelevant to the thread or not helping to find a fix

#1 Start Menu issue


Issue: Start Menu freezes and crashes.
Procedure: try to add my apps as tiles to the start menu right panel, one app can be added , the second will freeze the menu and it will crashes; the 1st app added before the crash will disappear.

Fix: I find a fix; seems the default account created during the installation is buggy, one need to create a second account, then set it as admin and delete the first one.

Fix: I cannot manage to find one, tried various methods without success. I reverted to my Windows 10 AU
Don't have this bug. Did you mess with cortana in any way?
Also did you do the windows updates after upgrading to Windows CU? Latest is 15063.11

#2 Windows Defender

Issue: Definitions will not update via Windows Update and Windows Defender
Procedure: Definition dates are current but are not installed. Windows Update / Windows Defender will retry without success!

Fix: Windows Update Cache needs to be deleted and after that all works well for one day. (Needs to be reapplied daily!)

Execute "As Administrator":
Code:
net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
rd /s /q %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
net start wuauserv
net start bits

I found a fix for issue 1 , edited the post.

I encountered issue 2 also while doing my office update; i disabled WD totally , did my update , then re-enabled WD; seems the latest definition 1752 is botched.

Alternative fix:

1- Use Windows built-in Diskcleaner > use it as admin > tick the box to clean Windows Defender
2- Update Windows Defender from WD Security Center
3- check Windows Update in Settings.

Seems MS fixed the flawed definitions.

Issue: In some MS tools (Task scheduler, Windows Firewall, etc...) , the text is blurry. (check screenshot) .
Fix: reduce text size to 100% or reduce resolution.

Issue "fixed" , don't reply about it unless you have new elements to add helping avoiding the issue.

#5 - Chrome constantly freezing.
ISSUE - I have had this issue for several days now. Chrome is the latest version. Sometimes it works fine others it does not. When it freezes I cannot do anything, open new tab go to another page close it. I have to go into the task manager and kill it.

impossibility to set Smartscreen for Edge to "Block"
Fix:
1- disable SS on Edge settings (Settings > View Advanced Setting > "help protect me.... > select "OFF"
2- go to security center > Smartscreen for MS Edge > select "Block "
3- go back to Edge and turn back SS to "ON"

The freezing in Chrome was being caused by the "hardware acceleration." Apart from that particular issue, I was experiencing other weird graphical glitches such as drop-down menus not appearing, within both Chrome and Opera. Turning "hardware acceleration" setting off fixed the issues in both the browsers.

One thing that never happened before is that when ever I get the battery low screen on my computer and I press the close button, it actually minimizes itself as a folder but when I click on it to maximize it, nothing happens. It only goes away after I plug it the power adapter. Not a big deal, but just thought I should mention it

Soon after upgrading, the mouse pointer kept changing to showing it was busy every second. I terminated processes in Task Manager until I eventally found the cause, which was Kaspersky Cleaner, so I uninstalled it and it has not happened again.
