  1. The problems with the Windows 10 2004 updates are not limited to Lenovo machines. Dell PCs and laptops are also affected. Specifically we have a number of XPS machines that earlier in June rolled out the 2004 update and then suffered huge issues including printers that were simply removed without warning, icons dissappearing from the desktop, exceptionally sluggish behaviour, freezing after an hour or so of use, apps simply not starting properly, prompts that licensing on Microsoft Office apps was invalid, and more. The licensing issue was resolved by enabling the software protection service, but this is the kind of thing that would appear to be a rookie error (disabled for testing, but failed to re-enable when compiling the update release)… and not the kind of thing we would expect from Microsoft. The whole Windows 10 2004 update process has been a nightmare for us and we have spent more time on trying to fix this, rollbacks, re-images, etc than anything else in the last 2 weeks or so. Microsoft needs to fix this and FAST. Confidence is waning and its getting pretty frustrating.
