Though I do have KB5001330 installed on my PC at the moment and haven't had any issues.  I think I even played Cyberpunk 2077 since then and it seemed fine.

I will probably install, let it update, and see if everything goes pear shaped.

There's a handy guide here - he does waffle on a bit, but gets there in the end.

The ISO seemed to still be November which I guess makes sense.

Unfortunately I'm having performance issues BEFORE that update though, possibly due to scan.co.uk in their infinite wisdom putting a 95W TDP cooler on a 105W TDP CPU.

Man its a PITA having to reinstall half a dozen launchers.  Will never understand the people who go on about how much better PC gaming is to consoles, I use both because sometimes you just want stuff to work without all this hassle.

Anyway to stay on topic, now fully updated so will see if its any worse/better as I know AMD tends to need more OS updates than Intel to get the best out of their CPUs due to needing process scheduling tweaks due to their chiplet design.  Fortunately I have my Zen referral credit so can easily buy a new cooler if necessary, but waiting to see what Scan have to say for themselves first.  I mean seriously, an Akasa cooler, they've always been considered the absolute lowest budget brand in my experience.

Worth noting that I tried the game I was having problems with again after all updates were installed (including the problematic one mentioned in the topic) and its now fine.

As it was an online-only game, it "possibly" could have been a fluke where it decided to connect over the 4G WAN (1 in 3 chance) and latency caused the stuttering.  Although I wasn't participating in an online event at the time, you never know how these games work when they force you to be online.  All progress is saved server-side so its possible it still keeps you fully online during these events.  Though the strange thing was, it wasn't stuttering in the open world, only when I started an event.

Apparently there is a fix out after Microsoft begrudgingly acknowledged it in one of the information pages.

They are also using a different method to correct the code by not going via Windows Update, so it makes it more difficult if their fix is applied. It can been seen using the registry.

If anyone downloaded the update previously, and you're confident looking in the registry, can you see if the fix as been applied to you?

After pausing the updates until today I resumed the updates.

Only the May update was available KB5003173, not the April KB5001330 update.

So far all went well.

I noticed some people on the forums have complained about the May update failing to install and giving a Windows error 0x800f0922 . This error is caused if you have manually removed the old Microsoft Edge, as part of this update (as in the April update) was to update Edge to Edge Chromium.

The roll ups are cumulative so you only get the latest.
