The problem may lie in the regular application “Connect”.
Released a week and a half ago, the January cumulative update of Windows 10 was even more problematic than it seemed initially.
The update number KB4528760 is important because it includes fixing the critical vulnerability discovered by the US National Security Agency. However, in addition to corrections, it brought new problems to users.
At first, users began to complain massively that the update could not be installed and only issued an error message. Basically, the problem affected users of the versions of Windows 10 May 2019 Update and Windows 10 November 2019 Update.
Some users had problems much more serious – updating KB4528760 can cause a download failure and even a blue screen of death.
Officially, the company has not yet responded to the situation. The cause of the failures is not exactly known, but one theory has appeared on the network. The problems may be related to the regular “Connect” application, since most affected users have recently uninstalled “Connect” from the system. Whether this is a coincidence or not is not yet clear.
The Connect application is part of Windows 10 and allows you to turn a laptop or computer into an external wireless monitor and stream video to it.
