Microsoft pushed the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to the general public couple of days ago. This came as a surprise to many users since the Windows 10 version 1809 was not pushed to the Release Preview Ring which is the last stage to fix any issues before a public roll out.

The public rollout of the new Windows 10 version 1809 confirmed that Microsoft has fixed all the bugs and the update was ready for public roll out. But as it appears that Microsoft has failed to fix at least one bug related to the Task Manager.

Task Manager in Windows 10

There’s a bug discovered in the Task Manager that is about incorrect reporting of CPU usage. According to Reddit users, Windows 10 Build 17763, the RTM build, which was released to the general public on Tuesday still has the weird bug.

We expect Microsoft to push out fixes for the Task Manager issues and a bug that deletes files in the upcoming Patch Tuesday Updates which are expected to be rolled out on Tuesday, 9th October.

    MSFT dropping the ball on every feature update. But at least no one can say they are inconsistent :-)

        I hear people especially enjoying the deleted files bug…

        • M Rankin

          Their files actually haven’t been deleted just accidentally moved.
          it’s a rare bug but has happened before going back to Vista.
          Files can be brought back using Recuva software.

            I’m sure everyone is computer literate enough to know how to do it. Cool.

            Will that is a problem indeed It a sad fact.

            But he’s right. You can try excusing Microsoft but they are one of the world’s tech leaders, they’re not a startup. Sorry to whine, but back in the day software houses spent a lot more time doing Q&A work and nowadays it appears along with the prevailing attitudes that your data, your problems, nothing of that matters. So you lost your photos – just make new ones! The old ones were shit anyway just as your life. So the update bricked your PC, who cares about the time you lost restoring it, there are a million other similarly skilled people who are ready to replace you in the interim. It feels like software is trying to make people’s work and lives a commodity recently and constant flow of bugs and problems is the standard.

            To be fair there’s a lot of different variables
            PC that came with Windows 7/8 are in the mix also
            that are not even getting any driver support anymore.
            that’s why is recommended to not force any updates.
            The update was not offered Unless a user check for updates.
