OR KB4559309 is a rather controversial Windows update. This is the update that Microsoft used to launch the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser on devices Windows 10 running versions 1803 through 2004.
Many users disagree with this aggressive approach and have criticized Microsoft for imposing the new browser. Others turned to Edge Blocker Toolkit to prevent the installation of the new application.
But beyond this controversy, it seems that there is something else that should worry us about the information KB4559309: users in Microsoft forums complain that the update causes computer performance issues such as slow startup and massive slowdowns every time.
Thread reveals Microsoft is also investigating the issue, but at this time there is no information on whether a patch will be released. The Microsoft Edge team needs more details on what exactly is happening before it can give a possible release date for the update.
- Slow start
- Failure to install the update
- The computer slows down at random times
- The wireless network has been switched off
- Slow network connection
- Freeze video and audio
- Huge memory usage
Needless to say, some of the problems listed above may not come directly from the Edge update, but users report that they noticed them immediately after installing the new browser.
Is there anything you can do?
Users on the Microsoft forum are considering all sorts of solutions and some say disabling it BitLocker sometimes solves performance problems on their devices. Others claim that disabling fast startup improves slow startup malfunction.
But on the other hand, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, so it's clear that Microsoft needs to release some updates.
