windows 10

Microsoft has already announced its plans to rollout the next major update for Windows 10 on October 17. Now, the company has released a new batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 that arrive with the monthly Patch Tuesday fixes. The new cumulative updates KB4038788, KB4038782, and KB4038783 have started rolling out which are primarily focused on bug fixes and security updates.

With the release of cumulative update KB4038788, Windows 10 is now bumped to version 15063.608. As expected, the update brings many patch fixes along with security updates for a lot of applications and components, such as the Windows Shell, kernel-mode drivers in Windows 10, as well as Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge web browser.

The second cumulative update KB4038782 is arriving on PCs that are still running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Along with bug fixes that are a part of the Patch Tuesday rollout, the update also brings other patch fixes to improve the overall system performance. For instance, the update fixes the issue while installing drivers that showed error 0xc0000005 ACCESS_VIOLATION.

Finally, we have cumulative update KB4038783 that is rolling out on devices currently running Windows 10 version 1511. Even this update is specifically focused on fixing bugs and security updates. Also, it includes a new version of MS16-087.

Windows 10 users need to perform a system reboot to install any of these new updates, depending on what version of Windows 10 you’re currently running on your PC.

You can check out the full changelog below as detailed by Microsoft, and see everything that’s included in each of these new cumulative updates.
