Still No Fix For The Problematic Windows 10 Update; Good News Is That You Can Uninstall It

Microsoft promised to fix the problems in Windows 10 update, after reports of performance issues on the mouse and games.

However, as of now, Microsoft has not resolved the issue while some gamers continue to complain.

But the good news is the Windows 10 update appears to be temporary. Users can uninstall it anytime as the tech giant is “working on a resolution” to the issues.

Windows dropped the KB4482887 on March 1 and almost immediately, people were flooding the forums with complaints.

Interestingly enough, the KB4482887 activated what’s called the Retpoline, described as a technique to address performance issues on the Spectre. But this patch proved to be a headache because it degrades the performance of the graphics and the mouse.

In its report, Microsoft acknowledged that it caused some games like Destiny 2 to be wonky. While the company only mentioned Destiny 2, the issues are more pervasive based on the number of comments from gamers.

For instance, in the Reddit thread, rayw_reddit wrote that the Call of Duty 4 and the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 are both suffering from lag spikes.

The game also freezes when you move the mouse around, with as much as a 1-second interval. Left on their own, the movements in the games appear to be normal.

Not everybody should be affected by the Retpoline performance, however. The patch targets specific processors that are affected by Spectre. These are older Core processors and Broadwell.

Users with Skylake processors installed should theoretically be fine.

Nevertheless, this new Windows 10 update is supposedly geared to improve performance for older PCs. For instance, the launch time for Office apps would improve by as much as 25 percent. The networking benchmark will also speed up by as much as two times.

However, Microsoft suggests that users just uninstall this Windows 10 update “as a short-term resolution. This is advisable for Destiny 2 players who encountered no problems prior to the update.

The company also promises to look into the problem and release another patch soon.

To uninstall the Windows 10 update, head on to the Update & Security menu and then click on View Update History. Look for the Uninstall Updates that you can see at the top of the screen.

At the Control Panel, go to Programs then head to the Programs and Features, which will then bring you to the Installed Updates option. Just right-click the patch that you want to take out.
