A couple of days ago, Microsoft released a brand new optional update for Windows 10. KB4512941 is supposedly addressing several concerns affecting Remote Desktop, Windows Sandbox and other elements of Windows 10. Nonetheless, it seems that this update is also causing big higher CPU usage concerns.
According to a lot of reports, Cortana’s SearchUI.exe course of action occupies 1 complete processor core soon after applying this update. As such, this will most probably lead to big overall performance concerns. What’s seriously ironic right here is that Cortana’s search on the desktop does not function any longer. So yeah, this is a bug that can – and will – have an effect on your general encounter.
These that have currently downloaded this optional update can either do some alterations to their registry or uninstall the update. We very advocate the latter as it is not worth messing about with your registry.
This is not the initially time that Microsoft has messed items with its Windows 10 update. A couple of months ago, some updates broke compatibility with a quantity of Anti-virus applications. Not only that, but one more Win10 update – that came out in April – also brought some overall performance concerns.
Till Microsoft resolves this problem, we recommend uninstalling the KB4512941 update.
Kudos to our reader Metal Messiah for bringing this to our consideration.
