Although Microsoft releases regular updates every month, it always inadvertently introduces more bugs. For example, the KB4532695 update, designed to fix the Windows 10 File Explorer search bar failure, resulted in failures including blue screen crashes, slow start-up, and sound/Wi-Fi. Microsoft announced the update in January 2020, but according to a number of user reports, it could cause PC crashes and performance issues.

In the initial reports, only a small amount of blue-screen crashes (BSODs) were reported. But now, the problem seems to have spread uncontrollably.
Many people in Microsoft’s official and some technology sites have blamed the KB4532695 update for the problem. In addition to the different stop codes, there are serious errors.
However, a new report recently says some users have experienced startup failures and even significant performance degradation, suggesting some very annoying bugs in Windows 10 patches.
“My PC is experiencing this exact problem, which is absolutely damaging,” wrote one Windows Latest user.
Because of system lock-up, we can’t even access the BIOS to install Windows clean up because it may be stuck in the startup cycle.
Of course, in countless attempts, it sometimes magically starts once or twice. I took this opportunity to restore the system to its pre-updated state, and the problem was solved.
Another user wrote: “I lost my desktop after the update and can only see the cursor of the mouse.” The keyboard lost its response and how to click is useless.”
With it all, I tried a system reset, got a new image from the hidden partition, and restored the desktop and all the functionality.
In several other reports, Windows 10 updates can also cause network card problems, reduce wired or wireless Internet connectivity performance, and even fail Bluetooth adapters.
I ran into problems with my Surface after installing the KB4532695 update, and even Bluetooth and network connections were affected.
You can try to restore it with problem troubleshooting tools, but frequent operations can be a real headache.
After installing the January update, some Sound Blaster sound cards may experience disabled issues, but on-board Realtek sound cards are normal.
Some Windows 10 users with other sound cards experience similar audio problems, so the KB4532695 update may not be compatible with some versions of the adapter.
Even some users complained that the KB4532695 could not be installed smoothly and reported the error, and according to one system administrator, Windows 10 might not be able to track the installation location of .NET.
Before the problem is fixed, you can try to run the following command and disable the .NET feature:
Dism /online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName: NetFx3
You can then change ‘disabled’ to ‘enabled’ and run a new command to restore the feature after the patch is installed.
If you want to fix the problem, you might as well simply uninstall the KB4532695 update:
(1) Settings – Update and Security – -Sgt; Windows Update;
(2) Click to view the update history – – uninstall the update;
(3) On the Update page of Control Panel, select the KB number for the cumulative update;
(4) Click Uninstall, and then restart the system.
Although Microsoft has not confirmed a new issue in the optional update, the File Resource Browser’s fix will come along with the security fix along with the February “Tuesday patch.”
