    This looks like it fixes the horrible no valid IP configuration bug that many people have been experiencing since last week, phew.

    Nice. Been sitting at 95% downloaded for about an hour (And no, it's not an internet connection issue.). Almost every update from MS tales a very long time to download - why? My Mac was also updated today - in a timely fashion, just saying.

    Annnnnd Microsoft has managed to break DHCP in this update.    Nice job.

    Boy that community testing is sure working out.  Maybe they shouldn't have layed off the entire QA department?

    Yes got this update through this morning and it did seem to take quite some time to download then install. Any improvements fixes are always welcome. Believe it or not but there is still a lot of users out there using IE11 as their primary browser despite the obvious security flaws etc.  People, microsoft edge has matured nicely and is a secure up-to-date browser. Shakes head.
