That's the worst site I have ever seen for ads warnings junk messages and all sorts of other impedimenta that I don't know the names of: the site is scarcely readable. The aspect of it makes me wonder if it's believable or some fake news scam.
But thanks for drawing attention to the update

From the article:

QUOTE
Microsoft warns that the update impacts Windows 10 computers with 4G LTE modems and after installing it “reaching the internet might not be possible.”

... Microsoft states it is “working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release”, but no time frame for a fix has been given.


I am really curious how they plan to roll out the resolution if people's internet connections are down because of the update. Floppy disk?

Strange question. USB disks have been around for decades, as have alternative connections like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, even cable.

Zocker,

There's nothing wrong or fake with the Forbes magazine site, and the Windows Update problem is real. Forbes enjoys a very credible reputation. Whether you want to realize there's a very serious ongoing problem with Windows and Office updates is up to you.

Gustav & Shadow,

Nevermind the internet connection, this update has wrecked millions of PC's to the point that many users have had to boot the repair utility and restore from backups...

05/26 Update: KB4556799 continues to cause chaos, but action is being taken by PC makers to try and mitigate it. First up is HP, which has released patch for BSOD and boot loop issues on its PCs caused by KB4556799. Called 'HP Software Component 4.1.4.3079', it has been pushed to Windows 10 Update and affected users should install it as soon as possible. Microsoft has already confirmed it is "investigating" the problems caused by KB4556799 and I would expect more patches from both Microsoft and PC manufacturers to arrive soon. In the meantime, stay away from this update.

05/27 Update: Windows Latest has published further information about the problems caused by KB4556799. Additional issues include File Explorer crashes, (causing the entire explorer.exe process to lock), kicking users out of their Windows 10 user profiles and requiring the creation of a temporary user profile to get it back, and a black screen of death rather than the more typical blue. At this stage it remains unclear just many users are affected, but there is significant activity on social media and popular forums like Reddit. If you find KB4556799 is installed on your system and you are lucky enough to have no problems, there's no need to remove it. That said, I would recommend those who have yet to receive it do proactively block it.
