- Updates an issue that causes excessive CPU usage when you switch applications or hover over the Taskbar.
Improvements and fixes
This non-security update includes quality improvements. Key changes include:
- Addresses an issue that causes excessive central processing unit (CPU) usage when users switch applications or hover over the Taskbar.
- Addresses an issue that prevents an App-V application from opening and displays a network failure error. This issue occurs under certain circumstances, such as when a system's battery is low or there is an unexpected power failure.
- Addresses an issue that prevents a web browser from connecting securely to Windows Server. This occurs when using a client authentication certificate, such as a SHA512-based certificate, and the web browser does not support a signature algorithm that matches the certificate.
- Addresses an issue that gives a Windows Hello for Business user two certificates for authentication during certificate renewal instead of one certificate.
- Addresses a possible compatibility issue when Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) accesses case-sensitive Server Message Block (SMB) shares.
- Changes the default setting for BitLocker when encrypting a self-encrypting hard drive. Now, the default is to use software encryption for newly encrypted drives. For existing drives, the type of encryption will not change.
- Addresses a rare issue that occurs when the mssecflt.sys driver takes too much space on the kernel stack. This results in the error, "STOP 0x7F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP", and Parameter 1 is set to “EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT.”
- Addresses an issue that leads to excessive memory utilization in Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP).
- Addresses an issue that may cause the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) to stop working with an “0xc0000005” error.
- Addresses an issue that causes the lsass.exe service to stop working, which causes the system to shut down. This occurs when migrating Data Protection API (DPAPI) credentials using dpapimig.exe with the -domain option.
- Improves the detection accuracy of Microsoft Defender ATP Threat & Vulnerability Management.
- Addresses an issue that causes stop error “0xc000021a” when you install a Windows update and initialize a system restoration from a restore point.
- Addresses an issue with the Origin request header behavior in Internet Explorer when you make cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) requests that use redirected resources in internal subnets.
- Addresses an issue that causes virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments to show black, flashing rectangles on the screen when using Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office.

Known issues in this update
|Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege.|| |
Do one of the following:
|Some Input Method Editor (IME) may become unresponsive or may have high CPU usage. Affected IMEs include Chinese Simplified (ChsIME.EXE) and Chinese Traditional (ChtIME.EXE) with Changjie/Quick keyboard.|| |
Due to security related changes in this update, this issue may occur when the Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service is not configured to its default startup type of Manual. To resolve the issue, perform the following steps:
The TabletInputService service is now in the default configuration and IME should work as expected.
|The print spooler service may intermittently have issues completing a print job and may result in a print job being canceled or failing. Some apps may close or generate errors when the print spooler fails and you may receive a remote procedure call error (RPC error) from some printing utility or printing apps.|| |
This issue is resolved in KB4524150.
When setting up a new Windows device during the Out of Box Experience (OOBE), you might be unable to create a local user when using Input Method Editor (IME). This issue might affect you if you are using the IME for Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages.Note This issue does not affect using a Microsoft Account during OOBE.
To mitigate this issue, set the keyboard language to English during user creation or use a Microsoft Account to complete OOBE. You can set the keyboard language back to your preferred language after user creation. Once the OOBE is done and you are at the desktop, you can rename the current user using these instructions. If you prefer to create a new local user, see KB4026923.
We are working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be available in late November.
