Microsoft with its latest Personal Computer Operating System Windows 10 has released a cumulative Update KB3201845 for the same couple of days back as a part of this month’s Patch. With this update Microsoft announced that this update is only related to Quality improvement rather than any new Operating System features. The Summary of this update is given below:
Though this Update was meant to enhance the quality of the Operating System but this has also caused a lot of problems to users who installed it because of some configuration error or might be due some changes. Getting this KB3201845 has brought many glitches that ranges from excessive battery drain issue to Windows Explorer bugs and many more which is creating a bevy of errors. Still there is no possible workarounds from the makers but few errors can be fixed with some simple tweaks. Here are some of the bugs that have occurred due to the Windows 10 Update KB3201845 and the workarounds for them..

Many users are not able to install the latest update KB3201845 on their personal computers/notebooks.

This may happen due to some changed configuration during installation or it might not have been completed properly. I would suggest uninstall the update and again reinstall or better keep your computer away from this update.
3.) Errors while using Google Products and Apps
After installing KB3201845 has also corrupted the Google products installed on Windows 10 PC. Google chrome, calendar and few apps aren’t working. Uninstalling the update also doesn’t helps. This update has also affected some Windows apps and programs and creating an issue while launching them. High CPU usage is caused due to “Service Host: DCOM Server Process Launcher” which is happening after the update.
Try to reset the Windows 10 Store using the WSreset.exe. If it isn’t working then uninstall and re-install your Windows 10 store using the Powershell command.
4.) Connectivity Issues due to KB3201845
The Update is not only limited to the interruption in above mentioned areas but also impacts connectivity issues. Users complain that Bluetooth controls are missing and Bluetooth has stopped working and also that Bluetooth is missing from the Device Manager. The Airplane mode has also stuck and has become unresponsive.
Either troubleshoot or Re-install the Bluetooth drivers and check this is working or not. If not then try using System Restore so as to restore to earlier point when your system was healthy and working fine.

1. Settings app is not opening. It has happened for some users and they are in dilemma. Don’t panic just wait for another update to arrive.
