Windows Update Client Improvement
Microsoft will release an update directly to the Windows Update Client to improve Windows Update reliability. It will only be offered to devices that have not installed the most recent updates and are not currently managed (e.g., domain joined).
Known issues in this update
Some users who have the text size for icons set to a larger size (using Display Settings in Control Panel) may have issues launching Internet Explorer.
Reducing the text size for icons to a smaller value or using the Change the size of all items setting should alleviate this issue.
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
