    According to scattered reports collected by Windows Latest, a patch released by Microsoft on Tuesday is crashing some HP systems. KB4464330 reportedly conflicts with a specific HP keyboard driver, and IT staff on social media claim that the update is affecting many of their clients. Microsoft is still dealing with file deletion issues following the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, but KB4464330 "addresses an issue where an incorrect timing calculation may prematurely delete user profiles on devices subject to the "Delete user profiles older than a specified number of day" group policy."

    "We are having the same issue on HP prodesk 400 G3 Windows 10 machines today. It is definitely related to KB4462919 and/or the HP keyboard driver at the top of your screenshot. We do NOT push out any driver updates, and we are not using HP keyboards with these PCs," Reddit user R1PLEY explains.

    You can find a patch for all your Windows 10 problems right here.

    We're only up to strike 2?

    It sure hasn't been the year of Windows 10.

    The desktop Windows platform is fragmented. Windows 7 is still the dominant OS and users and administrators are getting fed up with all the issues with 10. The guys actually generating revenue at Microsoft are pushing Linux support. It's all about Azure and 365 now, that's where the money is. Windows 8/10 failed to monetize apps and I can see their desktop OS division eventually rolling off a cliff just like the phone division did.

    And the Linux platform isn't? There are hundreds of Linux distributions out there.

    Which all build from the same source. All distro's are, are gnu/linux at different patch levels. This is not that different from windows10 .... those of fast ring, slow ring, those that never EVER updated. The main difference is quite alot of linux has been stable and backwards compatible since the 90's ... windows isn't even compatible with itself in a 6month window

    Linux is not the answer when the average user can't download and install Adobe Reader on a Windows system.

    HP computers are crap. No loss if they get mauled by a patch. Owners got what they deserved.

    OR

    It IS the answer. Make computers hard and the domain of nerds again. Put everyone else on tablets for their twitfacechat.

    Precisely why they shouldn't be using a computer.

    The desktops/laptops are utter shit. The servers arent half bad.

    It's time for vendors to drop Windows. Take any sub-$500 notebook or desktop at Walmart, drop Windows 10 and the 500gb spinner hard drive. Replace with Ubuntu and a 250GB SSD and you've instantly got a superior product.

    Awesome, thanks for the update.
    Looks like the fix is uber simple.

    HP make great stuff, it's a shame the same can't be said for micro$loth.

    Say what you will about HP computers, and no I would NEVER buy one, they are a hell of a lot better than that stuff from CyberPower or iBuyPower. Now those make dog shit look like caviar. ;)

    To which I say... WTF! Keyboards should be standard devices, what the hell is HP doing that requires a specific driver other than what the industry has been using for 20+ years?

    This is what you get for going against what is the industry norm. You tend to have things go horribly wrong. There's standards people... USE THEM!!!

    Cent is a good way to drive off most of the windows people here, cent would be a PITA to game modern stuff on modern hardware with it's age old tested platform philosophy. Great for servers or workstations (Depending on task), not gamers. Personally Manjaro, Solus, Fedora, and Ubuntu if you like PPA hell and maybe even OpenSuse Tumbleweed would be my recommendations.

    Great.... I just had the update run - after the reboot I've lost all of my USB devices!
    I had to rummage in the closet to find an old PS2 Mouse and plug that up.
    USB keyboard wouldn't work in anything but the top primary USB socket.
    Printer etc... won't connect anymore (sorry, keyboard has top priority for the only working port)

    /HATES automatic update!

    Well in the past few years that term has only been thrown around by windows apologists.

    Drop the 500gb spinner and install a 250GB SSD and it's a superior product regardless of the OS. :rolleyes:

    Biggest problems is that the average user doesn't even know what a SSD is.
    They just call up the relative they think knows something about computers and asks if they should get the 250GB model or the 1TB model that's cheaper.

    Nothing to apologize for. Microsoft screws up some stuff. Not ok. But anything as complex as a modern PC and OS is going to have problems. If I could simply install a Linux distro and never have to deal with another Microsoft fuck up then sweet. And some people can do that. For others the amount of busted hardware and software going to Linux isn't worth it.

    And I don't say this in any kind of defense of Microsoft; it's more like we're a woman stuck in an abusive relationship with a wife-beater.
