A bug within the Windows 10 April Update is causing devices to freeze or crash when using Google Chrome. Some of the other issues that users are reporting include File Explorer crashing, BSOD during the update, Microsoft and third-party apps become unstable, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection troubles, and hardware not working - just to name a few.

While some users have rolled back to their previous version of Windows, Microsoft has outlined a temporary workaround that should alleviate the issue and get you back working faster. While these handsets automatically download and install updates when available, you can try to get it manually by going to Settings Update & security Phone update Check for updates.

If you have a Windows 10 computer in your life, there's a good chance you can expect an automated download in the very near future (unless you've changed something intentionally and want those updates to roll out in your own time).

If you have not followed the release of the update, you may wonder why you should block the upgrade at this point in time. Of the three computers I've updated, the two with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10xx cards seem fine, it's the one with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M that seems to be having the occasional issue.

The undrafted sophomore from Wichita State struggled - finishing with eight points in 33 minutes, going 1-for-7 from long-range. The Raptors' backs are truly against the wall now, and they'll have to pull out all the stops just to survive on Monday night.


Several Chrome users reported bugs after installing the latest update and the software giant reportedly said it was aware that devices could totally hang and lock up when using the latest Windows 10 update and Chrome. If you were doing it using Microsoft Edge on your phone or tablet, or Office 365, that will sync to your computer. If you have a keyboard connected, simultaneously press the Windows logo key + Ctrl + Shift + B.

"Welp, it turns out the Meltdown patches for Windows 10 had a fatal flaw: calling NtCallEnclave returned back to user space with the full kernel page table directory, completely undermining the mitigation", Ionescu tweeted.

So, with all the problems and issues associated with the Windows 10 version 1803 update, you may want to think hard about upgrading to the new version right now.
