    Known issues in this update

    Symptom Workaround
    Installing this KB may change Czech and Arabic languages to English for Microsoft Edge and other applications Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release
    Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications that use JavaScript and asm.js may stop working after installing KB4041676. Uninstall the application. Once this is complete, reinstall it.
    Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
    After installing this KB, Internet Explorer 11 users who use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) may not be able to scroll through a drop-down menu using the scroll bar. Using the scroll wheel on a mouse works as expected. This issue only applies to document mode 11, so attempting to load the page with document mode 10 may work around the issue.
    To change the document mode in Internet Explorer 11:

    1. Select F12.
    2. Select the Emulation tab.
    3. On the Document mode menu, select 10. The page will reload in the new document mode.

    Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

    Posted yesterday in wrong thread:
    In another post last week I mentioned my ASUS Windows 10 bogging down (ASUS ModelQ524U). Thought had remedied by changing routers, but then: Took most of day to figure out today's issue is Windows updating. Mine is saying updates are Cumulative and just Windows 10 version 1703 for x64-based systems, plus Security update for Adobe Flash Player. Started early a.m. and is still going now into late afternoon. Not sure why it has to intefere with use of computer, but responses are frustratingly slow when I try. And others in this thread seem to have updates lickety split. Maybe my inexpensive ASUS, even with all it's memory and drive space, just isn't up to the task.

    "2017-11 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4048954)." Windows updates finally stopped. Except this Cumulative one's update history says: "failed to install." Update status says: "Some updates were cancelled. We'll keep trying in case updates become available."

    Today 11/16/17: Can't seem to find Adobe Flash Player on my computer.....though above says it was updated.

    I have had it with Windows Updates. So many black screen of deaths!

    Initially had issues with KB4041676. Had to repeatedly uninstall that update and reboot, which was only good for a day or two before Microsoft pushed their automatic download on again. Finally installed the Hide Updates Troubleshooter from Microsoft back in October and blocked that one from installing. So far, so good, if they don't apply a patch to it.

    Another update, KB4038788, caused a BSOD, so I uninstalled it, and it never reinstalled itself, so it's good. For now.

    Then on 11/14/17, KB4048954 was applied and caused, you guessed it, a BSOD. I uninstalled it, but sometime overnight, Microsoft did their dastardly deed of running that #$@%^ update and reinstalled it. So again, I had to uninstall it. I ran the Hide Updates Troubleshooter after I uninstalled it, but I believe that I should have run it before uninstalling. No problem, I will undoubtedly have to uninstall it within the next day or two.

    I understand that some of these updates are crucial, but so is having a working PC. Safe-mode is a nightmare.

    Microsoft now admit, that users with their PC set to defer upgrade to 1709 by being on CBB, are getting it anyway.
