    New windows 10 update (KB4041676) Causes program and game crashes


    Hi guys,

    I sometimes program, and sometimes play an occasional game

    Like for instance, windows 10 yesterday got updated on my main desktop computer and this update KB4041676 got installed.

    Today I get random crashes in Android studio as well as in Witcher3.

    Got me frustrated. I uninstalled it.

    Any official news about that?

    There were only two known issues in the notes and neither pertained to gaming.

    From what I can tell, at glace - Graphics drivers were the cause (they were NVidia drivers from September, I think), coupled with the new update - Crashes everywhere

    Very interesting, Nvidia graphic driver updates(Manually) solved some problems for me too a while back(recently).

    I'm running 385.69 without issue and am about to update to 387.92 so I'll report back if anything strange happens around it.

    I don't know which were last drivers.
    I have a GTX 750 GPU so a slightly better entry level gaming GPU, albeit slightly outdated.

    witcher 3 crashed mid game
    Android studio crashed when manipulating resources.
    Warhammer total war crashed (didn't even load)

    387.92 solved it for me.
    It all started with the update.

    Cant tell you how irksome that was
