The first update was released earlier this year in April and the second one was the most recent October update. This comes with many exciting features and fixes but on the other hand, brought along a big number of issues too which includes Data Deletion Bug that stopped the update’s roll-out for a few days, CPU Usage Problem, and an Audio issue.
Recently, Microsoft has released a patch for Windows 10 update that fixes an Audio Issue which has affected a small number of users who has completed the update. This Patch is available now on the Windows Update Tool along with the other fixes Microsoft has released in the current week.
The title of the update is KB4468550 (it can be downloaded from this link as well), and Microsoft claimed through OnMSFT, ”addresses an issue where after installing the Intel Smart Sound Technology driver (version 09.21.00.3755) via Windows Update or manually, computer audio may stop working.”
The bug causes a complete loss of audio on an affected system and there is no sound whatsoever, no matter what audio source or solution they use.
