On Friday last week Microsoft rolled out a new KB4482887 (OS Build 17763.348) update to its Windows 10 operating system. The update brought several new improvements as well as bug fixes. However, it looks like the new KB4482887 update seems to have some major issues and performance degradation which Microsoft has now confirmed on the KB4482887 update download page under known issues. Under its know issue column, Microsoft noted that after installing the latest Windows 10 KB4482887 update, users may find authentication issues with the Internet Explorer 11 (IE11).

Microsoft also noted down the graphics and mouse performance degradation with desktop gaming when playing certain games, such as Destiny 2, as well as issue with using MSI or MSP files, see below.

Known Issues in Windows 10 KB4482887 Update


Symptom Workaround
After installing this update, Internet Explorer 11 may have authentication issues. This occurs when two or more people use the same user account for multiple, concurrent login sessions on the same Windows Server machine, including Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Terminal Server logins. Symptoms reported by customers include, but may not be limited to:

  • Cache size and location show zero or empty.
  • Keyboard shortcuts may not work properly.
  • Webpages may intermittently fail to load or render correctly.
  • Issues with credential prompt.
  • Issues when downloading files.
Create unique user accounts so that two people don’t share the same user account when logging on to a Windows Server machine. Additionally, disable multiple RDP sessions for a single user account for a specific Windows Server.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

After installing this update, users may receive “Error 1309” while installing or uninstalling certain types of MSI and MSP files. Ignore the error.
